"Santa Barbara is as much about food and wine as it is about architecture and natural beauty. Make no mistake, the locals take food seriously. You'll see them rifling through boxes of sweet-smelling peaches and ripe figs while they chat each Saturday at the downtown farmers' market. And if they can't make it to Saturday's market? No worries, there's a farmers' market somewhere in town six days a week. Along with one of the largest farmers' markets in California there's also an impressive line-up of restaurants serving local sustainable fare." Brenda Christian, Qantas
