Our series on Urban Farming wraps up today with a look at how locally-grown food is being sold in San Diego. You can find produce from San Diego farms and gardens, as well as honey, herbs, nuts and treats at the growing number of farmer's markets around town. And some San Diego restaurants are starting to grow their own vegetables and fruits, and changing their menus to showcase the local produce.

GUESTS

Caron Golden, food writer of the column "Local Bounty" for San Diego Magazine and author of the blog San Diego Foodstuff

Chef Eugenio Martignago, executive chef at Bistro West and West Steak and Seafood.
