Sample Street Food in a Neighborhood Setting at Mercado La Paloma
The Mercado La Paloma (the Dove Marketplace) is a former sweatshop on South Grand Avenue, and is now serving as a community project aimed at supporting area small businesses, and providing the community with access to health, education, social, and arts resources.
Tomorrow, Trekking L.A., the endeavor that facilitates local adventures in our global city, launches their season of events with an evening at the Mercado, with the help of GOOD Magazine. With your RSVP you can arrive to the marketplace tomorrow evening starting at 6 and taste food from Southeast Mexico, Thailand, and Peru, hear Son Jarocho music from Vera Cruz, Mexico, make a street art installation, and, most importantly, support arts and culture programs in our neighborhoods.
