RECOMMENDED: The best farmers' markets in LA
Dozens of booths set up in Loma Alta Park's parking lot every Wednesday afternoon and evening at the Altadena Farmers' Market, where market-goers can pick up local produce, dairy, eggs and more from some of LA's most creative artisans. Chat with Jordan "Uri" Lai from Brassica & Brine over jars of sauerkraut and kimchi, or choose from refreshing gelato flavors at Bulgarini Gelato. If you've got a date that night, this is the place to be for picking up gifts that make an impression: flowers from Handmade Floral and lemon bars from Morning Glory Confections should do the trick. The market's founder, Joseph Schuldiner, also runs the nearby Institute of Domestic Technology.
