Support Local Growers and Artisans at the Highland Park Farmers’ Market

(LA Trend) — Not that you needed another excuse to visit the budding hipster paradise of Northeast Los Angeles, but just in case you did, there’s the Highland Park Certified Farmers’ Market that’s held year-round, rain or shine, every Tuesday.

Operated by the Highland Park Business Improvement District, this family-friendly community event is the perfect place to pick up some fruit and veggies from local farmers, try some freshly-made food, purchase wares from  NELA artisans, and enjoy some live entertainment. And while this farmers’ market is of moderate size (at least by Los Angeles standards) with only about 10 participating vendors, there are always different merchants regularly cycling through, so expect new surprises with each visit.

Held weekly on the intersection of Marmion Way and Avenue 57 since 2006 (one of the newest farmers’ markets in L.A.), the Highland Park Farmer’s Market has been a popular spot for locals and visitors to buy some organic groceries and a variety of artisan goods ever since it first launched years ago.

The Highland Park Farmers’ Market accepts CalFresh EBT and WIC. Stop by their information booth with any questions you may have.

And if you’re interested in becoming a vendor at the market, reach out to misty@oldla.org for an application form, rules, and regulations.
