Know Your Farmers Market: Sundays in Studio City
When it comes to farmers' markets, this is one of the behemoths of the Valley. Open from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. off Laurel Canyon and Ventura Boulevard along Ventura Place (map), the Studio City Farmers' Market covers the basics thoroughly -- all the veggies and fruits, including from organic farms -- but also boasts a variety of extras -- think farm-to-freezer popsicles to vegetarian Korean food -- which makes this market a must for locals.
It's here where you can pick up your bread and pasta -- two vendors to choose from for each -- fish and grass fed beef. It's here where you can take the kids for a pony ride, down a slide and to feed the goats. It's here where you can pick up some order-to-cook food, whether be from a market vendor or local restaurant like the Artisan Cheese Gallery, and sit down on the grass or at a table to start your morning off with a fresh kick.
