Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Shopping weekly for your fresh fruits and veggies, breads, eggs, and other edibles is utilitarian, but it can also be a dynamic sensory experience. Sure, there's the bustle of the crowd, the colors of the produce, and often live entertainment and enticing vendors to occupy your five senses. GOOD has put together a list of five Los Angeles-area farmers' markets "where the views are as juicy as the citrus."

Two of GOOD's picks are among LAist favorites, the Yamashiro Farmers' Market (Thursdays, April-September) and the Los Angeles Medical Center Certified Farmers' Market at Barnsdall Art Park (Wednesdays). Also on their list: Arts District/Little Tokyo Farmers' Market on the south lawn of City Hall (Thursdays), South Pasadena Farmers' Market (Thursdays 4-8 p.m.), and the Altadena Urban Farmers' Market (Third Sunday of the month,1-4 p.m.).

Have you checked out these markets? Or do you shop at another farmers market with a really great view that GOOD missed out on? We're going to put in a shout out to the Downtown Culver City Farmers' Market, where you are in the midst of some pretty amazing public art just steps from where you load up on your kale and strawberries.
