That Little Farmer's Kitchen in Hollywood

For almost a year now, a small corner storefront near Sunset and Vine has taunted neighbors and office workers as they pass by. "Coming Soon!" the sign reads at The Farmer's Kitchen, a Selma Ave./Morningside Ct. space owned by the non-profit Sustainable Economic Enterprises of Los Angeles. When it finally opens (which they hope could be in a year, construction just started) it will be a permanent extension of the Hollywood Farmers' Market and hold cooking classes while being a neighborhood "farm fresh" cafe with an emphasis on assistance and nutrition education to the low-income population.

SEE-LA runs seven markets throughout Los Angeles, including the popular one in Hollywood on Sundays. And today marked the grand opening of a new location for what used to be the Hollywood-Sears Farmers' Market. With a new name, the Hollywood Lemon Grove Farmer's Market is in a much more beautiful location (4959 Lemon Grove Ave @ Hobart Blvd.) that runs every Wednesday from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. (however, times may change).
