Opening Day! White House Farmers Market

Raise your hand if you have a bigger foodie crush on Chef Jose Andres after catching him on 60 Minutes with Anderson Cooper last Sunday?

Want a chance to meet him *and* get a taste of the giant paella he's cooking up today, head down to the White House Farmers Market today from 3-7pm.  It's on Vermont Avenue just across from Lafayette Park.

PS. Last year, at the launch of the White House Farmers Market, I discovered @Shaw_Girl and @UrbanBohemian on Twitter. They've since become great friends and amazing inspiration for blogging and learning about food and local ingredients. Check out their blogs, Adventures in Shaw and Urban Bohemian.
