Know Your (Seasonal) Farmers' Market: Thursdays at Yamashiro
This is a bittersweet installation of our Know Your Farmers' Market series, because not all our local weekly markets can operate year-round, and because of the weather, this one is about to close down for the chiller months. There are only two weeks left of this fabulously fun and unique market run by LA City Farm that launched earlier this year, but there are plenty of reasons to go check it out.
With one of the most dazzling open-air views in the entire city, Yamashiro's garden is like a snug sash that wraps around the base of the historic Hollywood hilltop restaurant. A free shuttle you pick up down the way off La Brea south of Hollywood Blvd. brings guests up to the venue, where the market--more like a well-organized street party--awaits.
Sure, you can do your regular marketing here, and make stops at the produce, honey, fruit and nut, pastry, and other vendors you'll find at other weekly farmers' markets. Live entertainment for the kids and the grown-ups add jubilant energy to the experience of strolling the stalls, and tables set up along the ledge give guests a chance to sit down and drink in the view.
