Yamashiro's Fab, Fun Farmers' Market Kicks Off Their Season This Week!

Yeah, that's a pretty amazing view up at the Yamashiro Farmers' Market (Lindsay William-Ross/LAist)

Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls.

One of L.A.'s coolest seasonal spots is the Yamashiro Farmers' Market, and the opening night is Thursday, up in the Hollywood Hills.

Worth the trek to Hollywood and the free shuttle ride for the panoramic view alone (time it with the sunset, please!), this seasonal market not only offers folks a chance to pick up farm fresh produce and artisanal goodies, but also shop for other food and lifestyle items, enjoy free entertainment, as well as grab a bite to eat.

This is where it all began for Yamashiro head chef Brock Kleweno and his beloved fusion tacos. Since the tacos have a permanent home down the hill at Komida, there's a new grill menu for this year's Market:

Chef Brock has created a line-up of gourmet sliders influenced by our very own dining menu based off our Short Rib, Jidori Chicken and Kurobuta Pork Carnitas dishes. He’s also debuting a Crab Slider for all you seafood lovers out there. Top off your slider with a selection of homemade pickled items made with Brock’s personal recipes. Each slider will be $3 and served with homemade potato chips
