The Secret Fork
Make sure you plan ahead before you check out The Secret Fork, an underground pop-up marketplace that suddenly appears in various venues around Southern California—attendees have to reserve a spot in advance before learning the secret location. On April 18, local chefs, artisanal food crafters, urban farmers, and pillars of the culinary community will gather somewhere in DTLA to share their goods, all made with ingredients and materials grown and raised in California. When all of your friends beg you to tell them where you got those beautiful blackberries or that grapefruit marmalade, you may find it difficult to keep The Secret Fork, well, a secret.
