We came to the farmers market and made our deposit into the local revenue. Delicious food served by truck on site. We had one steamed and one fried artichoke. So good! And much cheaper than at a restaurant. Friendly staff at the market and food...More

Loved the fried artichokes and the selection in the market is amazing! We bought artichoke bread (2 kinds) and also some artichoke salsa. If you love artichokes, you need to stop here!!

Drop what you're doing and go here. Right now. The artichokes served in all their forms are incredible! Very meaty; this place is family-owned since (if I remember correctly) 1929 and it was such a fun visit. We ate from the food truck and tried...More

This is the place to buy fresh cut artichokes when in season. The selection of artichoke based products is huge. Be sure to pick up a loaf of the artichoke bread. Heat at home and yumm. Maria is so nice to enjoy a friendly exchange....More

We've been coming here for years. We always stop to get fried artichokes. Lately picking up fried artichokes has been disappointing. They have been burned and tasteless. I've never found prices at Pezzini farms to be fair. It's always more expensive than other farm stands....More

They have the most outrageous Fried Artichoke Hearts in the World! Still 7 dollars, but the portions have shrunk. ( Better for my heart) You can always order the steamed or grilled hearts, but you only live once! And the PERFECT compliment is the Dijon...More
