Last year's inaugural Taste of the Farmers Market event was such a success that they've brought it back for another year, and it's happening this Tuesday.A $25 ticket gives you access to all the bits and bites provided by the Original Farmers' Market's many food vendors, restaurants, and purveyors, and a coupon book ($5 more gets you two drink tickets for wine or beer). Roam the stalls and aisles from 5-9 p.m. and enjoy one of the city's most long-standing (76 years and counting!) and beloved cultural cross-roads and gathering places.

From Littlejohn's English Toffee, to Bennett's ice cream, not to mention Gumbo, pastrami sandwiches, root beer floats, sushi, Korean BBQ, Loteria!'s chilaquiles, and more, there are 45 stops to be made on Tuesday inside the Market. One prime draw of Tuesday's event is the chance to preview a burger from Short Order, which will likely be LA's next big burger destination when it opens early next year in the 2-story space that formerly housed Du-Par's Bakery. The restaurant is the effort of the bun-and-patty-and-toppings trio of Chef Nancy Silverton, Chef Amy Pressman, and restaurateur Bill Chait.
