This Week: Take a Taste of the Farmers Market
It's the 75th Anniversary of LA's historic Farmers Market (you know, the really big one at Third & Fairfax) and as part of the celebration, they're having an event on Tuesday night where guests can pay a single price to taste the best of the market and enjoy live entertainment.At least 39 Farmers Market Restaurants will be serving guests a variety of selections from their diverse menus--everything from French Toast to English Toffee, Corn Bread to Corned Beef, Sandwiches to Sliders. And more than 20 Farmers Market Grocers & Shops will offer gifts or specials on items like hot sauces, peanut butter, stickers, hair brushes, watches, 75th Anniversary cigars and more. Live entertainment includes a caricature artist, a magician, a performance by The Hot Club Quartet, and the strolling sounds of The Doo-Wop All Stars. You'll also have the chance to hear the author of two books that celebrate the Market's anniversary, David Hamlin & Brett Arena's Los Angeles’s Original Farmers Market and Joann Cianciulli's The Original Farmers Market Cookbook.
The event is also doubling as a benefit for the West Hollywood Food Coalition, so please bring non-perishable food items for donation. Meet you at Third and Fairfax!
