One of our sustainable agriculture partners, Naturally to Your Door, provides community members with delicious CSA boxes that include our organic and fair trade coffee 12oz bags. Owners, Vic and Marissa attended the first Fig Fest San Diego at the San Diego Public Market on Sunday. The Fig Fest showcases California figs and dishes prepared by the top chefs of San Diego. They were able to savor gourmet food samples from local chefs and bakers paired with wine. They enjoyed smoked figs, plums and whipped goat’s cream with vanilla and sea salt from Beaumont’s eatery, fig & cauliflower from The Wellington Steak & Martini Lounge, cream cheese panna cotta with honey glazed figs from Nine-Ten, fresh figs with bleu cheese, bacon and honey from Bellamy’s, spiced biscotti with figs, honey and toasted almonds from Biscuit Gourmet Biscotti, and so much more! Vic and Marissa also got to say hi to their friends and sample Fig Jam from Jackie’s Jam and cooled off with some refreshing cold water from Solar Rain. We learned that figs are so versatile you can serve them in salads, stuff them in specialty cheeses, wrap in meats or cook in sauces (yummy fig reduction) to pair with grilled meats, or chop/puree to add to baked goods . So yummy!
The Public Market is just down the street from us so be sure to check out our community market that brings local, delicious, fresh foods to our neighborhood!

Kitchen 4140 is AMAZING!! Delicious farm to fork style philosophy, Chef Kurt and his friendly, knowledgeable staff creates an incredible dining experience. Located out of the way on Morena Blvd near Costco, this restaurant is definitely a destination location, busy every day of the week except Mondays when they are closed. Restaurant guests enter the courtyard where fresh herbs, swiss chard, tomatoes, and other delicious edibles are growing in cute garden boxes. They then enter the restaurant through a rolled up garage door to walk into what feels like a beautifully decorated barn with fresh succulents and wild flowers in vases on the tables. The staff dresses up in unique uniforms, fully equipped with suspenders, tasteful flannel shirts, and a long striped apron that ties in the whole simple farmer-living atmosphere.
Everything served here is locally sourced and you can definitely tell the difference. Every bite tastes of incredible, mind-blowing freshness that can only be attributed to their sourcing. Stacey holds the fresh arugula salad with sautéed red peppers and a perfectly poached egg.
Featured in San Diego Home & Garden, San Diego Dining Out, and Pacific San Diego as a local treasure, this establishment also puts itself on the map through its mindfully crafted wine selection. Also sourced from local regions, Chef Kurt finds and selects an incredible array of wines and features them in an entirely separate wine room. Here they host delightful 5-7 course meals that pair numerous wines from a selected vineyard with a special dish created by Chef for the guests’ pleasure. Join them on August 15th when they feature Walt Winery & Hall Winery from Napa Valley.
Shout out to Rigo, our sales representative, at minute 2:00. Local loose leaf teas and delicious coffee!
