RECOMMENDED: The best farmers' markets in LA
On any given Sunday at the Beverly Hills Farmers' Market, you may find the following: a pop band performance comprised of middle school kids; the smell of French crêpes luring passersby in for chocolate and nutella delicacies; near-centenarian Harry Nicholas from Nicholas Farms hocking fruits with his signature smile. The market, which can be found along Civic Center Drive parallel to Santa Monica Boulevard, features over 60 farmers and vendors. It's also a great spot for kids. At the Kid Zone, pony rides and a petting zoo entertain fidgety children, while culinary-minded young'uns can enjoy Cookin' Kids every second Sunday. Drop your child off to learn about fruits and veggies in season, the farmers behind the produce, and recipes to bring back home for tonight's dinner (they'll be doing the cooking, of course).
