Don't have to worry at the Spina Farms roadside produce stand off Monterey Road just south of Coyote (take a right on Baily and the first left). The corn and tomatoes come right from the fields next door to the stand itself.
With the tomatoes especially, the difference is easily seen. No bruises from long rides with strange truckdrivers, and the red color looks ... well ... the way a red tomato is supposed to look. There's also a great collection of fresh produce from other farms: citrus fruit, vegetables, grapes and melons, and strings and strings of garlic hanging from the ceiling. As if that weren't enough, Spina also has one of the best collections of old farm stuff tacked onto its walls, from ploughshares to horse collars to well-worn hats.
