This week's Los Angeles Times Food Section produces an special issue focused on farmer's markets. This year they not only update the masterlist of Farmer's Markets area but also includes a special survey of the smaller, neighborhood markets.

Susan LaTempa writes, "But at the smaller markets, that mission — bringing fresh produce to city dwellers while making it possible for small farmers to sell directly to consumers at retail prices — is thriving. As it turns out, Culver City is mid-sized — an Accord, not a Mini Cooper. L.A.'s smallest, the Saturday morning Los Angeles (Harambee) farmers market on Crenshaw, often has a mere half-dozen booths and just one farmer."
