Hi there! And welcome back to another installment of L.A. Best Kept Secret! This week we’re talking about the Sunday Farmer’s Market on Melrose Place.
We could write a blog entry a day for a year on the Farmer’s Markets of Los Angeles. They happen every day of the week, 365 days a year. It’s one of the most glorious things about life in the City of Angels–you never have to go without farm-fresh fruits and veggies, homemade tamales and pupusas, and crafty treasures by local artisans. Of course there are the big and fabulous Farmer’s Markets–the triumvirate of Santa Monica, Venice and Hollywood–but most every neighborhood has its own smaller version, too.
This past Sunday, on our way to brunch, we stumbled across the Farmer’s Market on Melrose Place. For those of you who don’t live here in L.A., MP isn’t just a kitschy, Heather Locklear extravaganza from the 90′s, it’s a true-blue street. It’s only a couple of blocks long, jutting off busy Melrose Avenue to the La Cienega Design Quarter, and featuring some of the city’s toniest designers and boutiques, such as Marc Jacobs, Diane Von Furstenberg and Monique Lhullier.
So, if your like your organic fruits and veggies in a beautiful setting and at a slower place (no elbowing or crashing of wheelie carts), the Melrose Place Farmer’s Market is just for you. Every Sunday from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., on Melrose Place between Melrose Avenue and La Cienega Boulevard.
