RECOMMENDED: The best farmers' markets in LA
Take a break from dodging tourists and faux superheroes by paying the Hollywood Farmers' Market a visit (held every Sunday from 8am to 1pm). As one of the first farmers' markets to pop up in California, the strip of vendors that stretches along Ivar Boulevard has grown to 160 farmers, producers and artisans, and also serves as a venue for live music, book signing and mouth-watering chef demonstrations. Stock up on California-grown avocados, dates, honey, free-range poultry—or head to the nearby The Farmers Kitchen, where pumpkin quesadillas and brie and fig sandwiches are made with ingredients straight from the vendors.

Going to the Hollywood Farmer's Market is an all-day event. Parking is a bit of a challenge, but worth it. This market is huge and has almost everything you could think up for cooking and entertaining. There are a few gimmicky things going on here—baby goats at the cheese stand, a woman writing on-the-spot typewriter poems for donation—and plenty of tourists to eat it all up. But there's also delicious food to eat up, both from vendors and food trucks, and the produce here is top notch. You'll almost always run into someone you know (either from real live or TV), and it's a fun way to spend a Sunday a few times a year.
