Atwater Village: It’s Not Just Home to a Casket Store Anymore

Having recently moved to Atwater Village and being totally excited to live here, I decided I’d try to get involved in the Atwater community and see what I could do to make this little village even better. The first place I looked was Atwater Village’s Home Page, where I found tons of information on the village, future projects, and the some very exciting news: Atwater Village is about to be home to a brand new Farmer’s Market! The Farmer’s Market will be much like the Hollywood farmer’s market, only a bit smaller. It will be held every Sunday starting June 19th in the Wells Fargo Parking lot at 3250 Glendale Blvd. I’m not quite sure of the hours, and when I tried to call the woman in charge I got cut off twice, but if you want more info about this awesome new market check out the Atwater home page or

Oh yeah, and for those of you who don’t know, the casket reference is true. There is really a casket store right in the middle of Atwater. Hilarious.

  1. Atwater’s not only a great place to live, it’s also a very active and involved community. Here are a few groups to check out:

    Atwater Village Residents Association, which puts on the annual Street Festival
    Friends of Atwater Village, which has recently been working on improving Fletcher Drive as well as putting up artistic and other projects
    The Neighborhood Council
    The Chamber of Commerce

    And as always, you’re welcome to email Councilmember Garcetti’s Atwater deputy Jim Omahen with any Atwater-related questions.

  2. There’s a great Cuban restaurant just a few doors down from the casket store–Baracoa. Try the arroz con pollo… you won’t be disappointed. The meat falls off the bone, the rice melts in your mouth. You kind of have to get there early for it, though. The menu notes – “Until we run out.”
