BRENTWOOD FARMERS’ MARKET741 S Gretna Green Way Los Angeles CA90049
It’s hard to find a healthier or less expensive way to soak up Los Angeles sunshine than a family day at one of the city’s farmers’ markets. Bursting with delicious food for adults and fun activities for kids, stops like the Brentwood Farmers’ Market provide an easy way to keep everyone in the family smiling. At Brentwood, kids will get excited about the petting zoo and horse rides that clop along the adjacent country club trail. While kids are off perfecting their cartwheels in the bouncy castle, parents can find unique jewelry, clothing, and crafts from cheerful vendors. The highlight for the adults is definitely the produce. Get your daily allowance of vitamins from juicy strawberries, peaches, and persimmons. Most vendors offer free samples of their products, so don’t be bashful, stick your toothpicks into as many sweet fruits as you like. Take advantage of “happy hour” prices after 12:30pm, when many stands offer everything in their baskets at huge discounts. If your stomach rumbles for something savory, satisfy it at one of the lunch stands. Pupusas are a standout. These grilled Salvadoran treats are served with cabbage, salsa, and sour cream. As a nice perk, you can relax with your meal at the adjacent school, which offers tables for adults and a playground for the little ones. At the Brentwood Farmers’ Market, the fruits and vegetables you buy will last about a week, but the joy your family finds will last much longer.
