What people are saying about poppy and oak

These boxes made the perfect birthday gift for two new mothers. I was able to work with Meghan to customize the box to include not only items for them, but also special items specific to new moms. The boxes were beautifully put together and the recipients were so excited to receive them. I will definitely be purchasing boxes through Poppy and Oak in the future - they provide amazing, original boxes that take you out of the mundane task of gift giving and truly make it something special.

This Week at the Farmers Market: Winter Citrus & A Bright Salad Recipe

This Week at the Farmers Market: Winter Citrus & A Bright Salad Recipe

One of the great things about the Davis Farmers Market is that it's a year round market. We're fortunate in the Sacramento Valley to have several year-round farmers markets. I feel somewhat spoiled to have access to fresh, locally-grown, seasonal produce, 52 weeks out of the year. 

Winter produce obviously looks a little different than what's available in other months. Gone are the stone fruits, watermelons and bright cheery sunflowers. But some of my favorite produce is what's seasonably available in the winter -- winter squashes, daikon, kohlrabi, and especially the citrus. 

Oranges, lemons and limes yes, but also satsumas, pomelos, grapefruits, meyer lemons, blood oranges, and buddha's hands. 

Museum of Ice Cream: A Kid-Friendly San Francisco Pop-Up

Museum of Ice Cream: A Kid-Friendly San Francisco Pop-Up

Growing up in the hot Northern California summers, we ate a lot of ice cream and spent a lot of time in the pools. When it's 105 degrees out, you don't want to each much else besides watermelon or ice cream. Or the popsicles from the Ice Cream Truck.

So when my friend Heather told me about the Museum of Ice Cream, which originally opened in Los Angeles, I knew I had to check it out.

The MOIC is more of an eye candy ode to pop-art, Lisa Frank and bubble gum and less interactive than the Color Factory.

Meet the Maker: Yolo Press

If you frequent the Davis Farmers Market than you've probably noticed the woman with the brimmed hat and infectious smile that is seemingly always at the corner stall on Saturday mornings.

The Madisons started off growing bulbs and cut flowers on their 22 acre farm, about 200 types, before moving to olives. Throughout this time, they've also grown a dozen or so varieties of citrus, including clementines, oranges, bergamot, and yuzu, as well as other produce such as quince, melons, and blackberries.

The Color Factory: A Review of Our Family-Friendly Day of Colorful Fun

Tickets to San Francisco's The Color Factory are about as difficult to get as a mid-90s Tickle-Me-Elmo, so after being in a virtual queue with hundreds of others, I felt like I'd won the lottery when I secured weekend tickets for the whole family for the limited run pop-up event.

The Color Factory, which opened in August and has been extended through at least February 2018, is an interactive exhibit located in a two-story building near Union Square, in downtown San Francisco.

For those of you who were lucky enough to score tickets for this next round, here are a few family-friendly tips for making the day just that much more enjoyable!
