A couple weekends ago, Sherman Oaks opened their own weekly farmers market.
I’d been to the big, permanent farmers market at The Grove roughly a billion times since I’ve moved out here, but I’ve never gone to one of the weekly ones that are so prevalent in LA before — each one is open different days of the week, and at different times, and I’m always forgetting to go until I see a sign pointing out that I JUST missed one.
This time, though, I’d left myself enough reminders to know that come 9 AM Saturday morning, it was time to get up and get my little butt over to the farmers market!
I was definitely delighted at their first efforts — a good selection of fresh flowers, and a fairly wide range of fresh (and often organic) fruit, vegetables and nuts. Prices were pretty on-par with what I normally pay too, so stopping by weekly isn’t going to break the bank.
You could also find some bakery options, and local restaurants with stands to provide breakfast. (Eggs or breakfast burritos, anyone?)
There was even some live entertainment (I have no idea if this is a typical farmers market thing, but it was really enjoyable!)
It was a little smaller than I thought it would be, but it was just the first week. This is also the first Sherman Oaks sponsored one, meaning it’s SUPER close to me — definite bonus points! I’m definitely looking forward to early Saturday morning trips for the foreseeable future!
