Farmers Market is a classic Los Angeles institution located on Fairfax Avenue and Third Street. This vibrant locale offers a plethora of food vendors and several specialty shops, all while offering the visitor with a taste of its past, from its homage to the model oil well and race track displays of the venue’s early days, to the locale’s vintage-style throwback produce stands mirroring its actual, long ago local farmers market, where fresh fruits and vegetables would be sold.
There is a rich history in this local family-friendly tourist attraction, where anyone can explore a wide selection of prepared food in a small space — fresh falafel, seafood, donuts, hot dogs, meat prepared Churrasco-style, etc. People from all walks of life also come here to explore unique shopping storefronts by way of visiting the local mom-and-pop candy and spice shops, as well as the classic toy shop and the awesome wine and cheese gourmet market known as Monsieur Marcel.
Yesterday was St. Patrick’s Day, so friends, family and I met up at the Farmers Market to make for a fun family day. The scheduled performances of Glen The Bagpiper certainly was a treat for us L.A. natives, but the real treat was in sharing in the culinary dessert experience that only this Farmers Market can offer: Los Angeles’ own Bennett’s Ice Cream.
