A Trip to Larchmont Farmers Market

Berries at Larchmont Farmers Market

This Sunday we made a trip to downtown Los Angeles to meet good friends, and one of them, my university friend Xue Mei, a health conscious and farmers market lover kind of gal, took us to the nearby Larchmont Farmers Market where she goes every Sunday. It was awesome!

The market is located in the charming Larchmont Village of Los Angeles. It is a lovely small place where you can find stalls brimming with fresh vegetables and fruits, fish and shellfish, flavored olive oils, ethic foods, breads, fresh herbs, potted herbs, trees, honey, flowers, candles crafts and jewelry. Something for everybody.

I was particularly enamored with the stall that sells mushrooms of all sorts. So many different varieties! Below are some pictures I was able to snap while filling my bags with goodies and chasing our excited kids. Hope you enjoy.

Pomegranates at Larchmont Farmers Market

Fresh pomegranates! We sampled them – they are very sweet and not so juicy, yet, I bought a few as I cannot walk away from pomegranates so easily.

  1. Farida, these pictures are amazing as well as your children. I live in Cape Cod, Massachusets. Every year the place that I work for is also attending in local Farmers Markets. Also Boston and Salem markets. Our products are mostly bakery products. Next year if you’re planning to be in the States please don’t resist to visit Cape Cod. And thanks for a great job with “AzCookBook”, you are our proud!

  2. NASIB HASANOV – Thank you for your nice comment. I would be happy to visit Cape Cod one day:) Thank you!
