Santa Monica loves their produce! This community has 4 Farmers' Markets each and every week so there is absolutely no reason not to go at least once! I'm keeping the posts separate since they are held at different locations on different days. This post is for the Ocean & Main Farmers' Market held every Sunday.

Well it is almost Halloween. I think it is high time to get your Pumpkins and get your Creative carving skills to work by buying and carving that special pumpkin.  Go to the nearest Local Pumpkin Patch Farms I find it is more memorable, instead of running to your nearest Grocery Store, do something different. Nothing beats a day at the local pumpkin patch farm; it is like picking your own Apples or Strawberries. You have to do it once to appreciate what I am suggesting here. It's guaranteed to put a Jack-o-Lantern-sized smile on everyone's face that you bring along for the adventure. This is where you can find the local pumpkin patch farms in and around Los Angeles County and California.

The countdown continues... We have been preparing for this since we found out that krunching.com is up for Innovator of the Year. Our great ideas and this hard work is paying off. While Brian is up at Inman Connect, doing interviews, networking and attending the different conventions. We are really excited to see what happens tomorrow morning. I meant to comment on this earlier but with so much happening its been crazy busy. New members signing up everyday. We knew this was a a good idea but when you see others talk about it too, well then you know its not just an idea anymore but something useful and needed in the industry. With the bail out of Fanny Mae and Freddy Mac, the intense fear in home buyers, mortgage companies and banks going belly up, this could be a scary time to invest in...

We recently completed a really fun Staging of 3 model units in an ultra-contemporary loft building in Santa Monica. The units are listed by Dana Ehrlich of Keller Williams Santa Monica. We tried to give each of the units a distinct look and feel and we also included both someplace to eat, work and watch TV in each of the units despite the very small size.
