Tastes of Farmers Market

On Tuesday July 16th, the Original Farmers Market at 3rd & Fairfax will celebrate its birthday with a “Taste of Farmers Market”. This event takes place from 5 PM to 9PM and features plates from many of the markets restaurants and grocers including those from renowned LA Chefs Jimmy Shaw of Loteria Grill, Neal Fraser of Fritzi Dog and Nancy Silverton of Short Order.

This marks the fifth year for The Taste of Farmers Market, an event initiated in 2009 to mark the Market’s 75th anniversary. Since the first event was so well received in 2009 the organizers decided to keep the event going by making the market’s birthday an annual event.

The menu being served at this year’s birthday party includes mini-chicken pot pies, stuffed mushrooms, pear gorgonzola flatbread, jumbo wild shrimp, kale Caesar salad, orange chicken, pork belly BLTs, chocolate mousse, pastrami sandwiches, gumbo ya-ya, Brazilian BBQ, Nutella crepes, falafel, tri tip sandwiches, toffee, doughnut holes, root beer floats, fancy mixed nuts and beer & wine samples. The full menu of available items is still under construction and will include additional dishes.

For advanced registration, tickets priced at $35.00 are currently available online at the Market’s website www.farmersmarketla.com Tickets are also available at the door for $40.00. The ticket includes a taste for every vendor participating as well as two drink tickets for non-alcoholic beverages.

    Would anyone like to meet up and walk around together? I can get there early. After, we could maybe catch a movie and go back for more snacks. Call me if you are interested[masked]-9614. I did this last time and it was fun but better if you are walking around with someone.

    FYI: Just checked with Farmers Market...there is no T Mobile in FMarket...Manager suggested we meet under the Clock Tower in the Plaza next to the Coffee Bean since it's close to Gate 1 where you buy your tickets for Entrance to the event.

    Awesome that there is a a lot of interest. I'm going to be there at 5 PM but since I got a media comp, I have to run around and interview people while I'm there which will be until around 7:30 PM after which I have to run off to another media event for Dine LA . So for those wishing to be social, I suggest choosing a time and place to meet in the market say, for example, at Loteria at 7PM...or exchange some cell phone numbers. I can also designate some one as "the host" if they want that distinction, since again this as of right now this is a "no host" event. Remember too to purchase your ticket beforehand to save five bucks.

    Bummer! I love Farmer's Market, but I'll be in Europe on that day. Exploring Holland, then going down to the "holy land" of Spain!!
    Can't wait to eat tapas!

    I accidentally stumbled upon this event by accident... I thought it was so great all the merchants giving away free food... then someone asked to see my wrist band... WTF? I didn't know what they were talking about... I think this was the first year so they were disorganized... I doubt you can get lots of freebies this year... but it was great... they also should have live music and there's an active bar scene at one of the bars...
