A Quick Look at the Woodman Ave Market/Farmer's Market
Tuesday is not exactly a day that screams "go to the Farmer's Market!" Yet everyday of the week, there is one somewhere in the Los Angeles region and on Tuesdays, Woodman Avenue in Sherman Oaks becomes one of those places. The weekly event is not purely a farmer's market (and probably why it's called the Woodman Avenue Market)--there are plenty of vendors selling clothes, solar power and sunglasses. The real meat, no pun intended, are the quality fresh farm stands. Our favorite pick is easily the South Central Farmers who offer a box (or three bags worth) of vegetables for $15 (you will be stir frying all week long, no joke).
The market runs every Tuesday from 3 to 8 p.m. and includes a good number of prepared food vendors including those who sell cobblers, BBQ, empanadas, tamales, desserts (vegan ones by former Leda's Bakeshop chef Kim Garr, who now owns C'est La V), shaved ice and more.
