New Weekly Farmers' Market Launching This Month at The Autry in Griffith Park
Yippie ki yay! There's a new weekly farmers' market launching at the end of the month at The Autry National Center in Griffith Park.
Combining a pretty amazing piece of L.A. landscape and supporting local growers and vendors, The Autry Farmers Market will be open for business 8 a.m. to Noon starting Saturday April 28.
The market is organized by the non-profit group L.A. City Farm, who work to bring healthier, fresh foods to L.A. communities. L.A. City Farm knows how to put together a weekly market that's more like an event, and suitable for family fun; one of their other markets is the Yamashiro Farmers Market.
At the Autry, market-goers will find not only stands offering organic and conventional produce from area farmers like Tutti Frutti Farms, Underwood Family Farms, and Avila & Sons Farms, but also other food products and tasty goodies from folks like Milkman Artisan Cheeses, Homeboy Bakery, Novy Ranch, Cobblermania, and Longshot Espresso. Heirloom LA, Global Soul, and the Crepe Kitchen are confirmed as freshly- prepared food vendors.
If you are a member of the Autry, you can flash your card for a 10% discount at the vendor booths. And since you're there, if you're so inclined, you can check out the museum (they open at 10 a.m. on Saturdays) and include a visit to their Cafe, where they will have a Mimosa bar, live music, and games. The Autry Cafe opens at 8 a.m.
