Sunset Strip Launches Farmers' Market After Dark
Not everyone is able to wake up in time to shop for organic goodies at morning farmers' markets. Fortunately, for the after-hours types, who prefer mingling and wine tasting as they pick out produce, "The Sunset Strip Market" opens June 14.
The nighttime certified farmers' market and community event will take place Thursday nights from 5 to 9 p.m. on the lot at 8755 Sunset Blvd. It will feature a variety of locally-grown produce, farmstead cheeses, pasture raised chicken and eggs, grass-fed beef, gluten-free and vegan baked goods, sustainable fish, and artisan goods along with live music, pop-up shops and a pairing pavilion to help shoppers select wine and beer to complement their organic eats.
The vendor section was curated by Diana Rodgers who established the Santa Monica Main Street and Mar Vista markets.
A "veggie valet" will also be on hand to hold produce bags while visitors check out the nearby restaurants and bars.
The Sunset Strip Market partnered with multiple parking lots to provide $5 validated parking. Options on Sunset Blvd include these addresses: 9000, 8570, 9040, and 9026. Validated $5 parking is also available at BLT Steak, 8720 Sunset Blvd., and Mirabelle Restaurant, 8768 Sunset Blvd.
West Hollywood public parking lots within walking distance of the Market are available for $1 per hour at 9056 Sunset Blvd. at Doheny and $2 per hour at 8459 Sunset Blvd. at Queens Road.
