Delicious Spree LA to Z...F is for Farmers' Market, Westchester
LAist is going on a delicious spree around LA from A to Z. Our week of F for Farmers' Markets was interrupted, but resumes this week. We're not blogging about the permanent Farmers' Market at 3rd and Fairfax, but the many certified farmers' markets around the southland that offer fresh produce from local farmers. LAist will visit a different market each day this week.
Wednesday is a big day for the markets, and on the westide, the biggest market is in Santa Monica. LAist decided to hit up a smaller market in Westchester. Tick tick tick, and as soon as 11:00 hit, we hit “Enter” and dashed to the printer for fear of being exposed to someone rifling through the reams of paper that were being spewed out. We snatched the google map to West 87th Street between Truxton Avenue and Sepulveda Eastway, just as a massive Powerpoint presentation hit the queue.
It’s an easy drive on the freeway before the lunch crowd hits the street, and the La Tijera exit is just a short hop. Just as an aside, La Tijera heading west from the 405 is very hilly – like a roller coaster. Very nausea-inducing like the drunken drive home (in the passenger seat of course) on Sunset Blvd from West Hollywood to Brentwood. And as an aside to the aside, we saw Buggy Whip, the supremely old school restaurant that many people talk about. Now LAist can say we’ve seen it, but we don’t think we’d make a special trip out to Westchester to eat there. It looks 80 years old, and we don’t mean 80 years old in sweet, grandmotherly way. It’s 80 years old in a scary way.
