From the Experience LA Newsletter (an “online resource for exploring the LA Region’s wealth of cultural attractions” put together by a coalition of various city & county agencies), I found out that:
Los Angeles is home to over 32 Farmers Markets, spread out over our diverse and sprawling city. Check out all the wonderful Certified Farmers Markets (CFMs) available in Los Angeles County. Certified Farmers Markets (CFM’s) are “the real thing,” places where genuine farmers sell their crops directly to the public. [complete list of L.A. Farmers Markets]
What’s cool about this list is that in addition to the times, dates, & websites of these farmers markets, they provide links on how to get to the exact location with the Metro Trip Planner. Oh, and you can see a list of markets by day of the week, too.
I’m glad they note that this is a list of genuine farmers who sell their real crops, as opposed to those annoying fake Hollywood* farmers who only sell plastic fruits and vegetables…
*This is not to imply that the farmers at the Hollywood Farmers Markets sell any/only plastic fruit.
