RECOMMENDED: The best farmers' markets in LA
This neighborhood market—hosted Tuesday afternoons and Saturday mornings in Silver Lake's Sunset Triangle, just east of Sunset Junction—is the Eastside place to see and be seen while you peruse produce. The shoppers here have style, as evidenced by the many (rather pricey) vintage clothing racks and jewelry stands dominating a corner of the market. There are also used books and records for sale, fresh flowers, plus a lot of crystals, dried sage and other hip hippie wares. And there's tons of food, too. Grab a coffee or a fresh-squeezed OJ, pregame with a tamale or crêpe and stroll the stalls. Highlights include some pretty incredible citrus vendors, fresh-baked bread from Atwater's Village Bakery, mason-jarred goat cheese, farm-fresh eggs and tons of veggies (though only two veggie vendors are certified organic). There are also prepared foods such as hummus, guacamole and kimchi from Dave's Gourmet Korean Food. Ask for a taste of his miso broth and you'll be hooked for life, especially in "wintertime."

I live in Echo Park and this is my go-to market. It's small enough to feel like a neighborhood market (no touristy Hollywood feel), but large enough to stock a variety of produce and vendors (unlike Echo Park's market, which feels too small). You can get almost everything you need here—including fresh bread, cut flowers, sustainable fish and meat, local cheese—even vintage clothes, books and records. Though truly I wouldn't mind if some of the shopping area was designated for more food vendors—it is a farmer's market, after all.
