#229: Beverly Hills Farmers Market

For the past four Sunday mornings, I've been making the 30 minute drive to the Hollywood Farmers Market (#139) in order to get some of the best kiwis, seafood, and grass fed beef I've ever tasted. I was all gung-ho in the beginning, but by the fourth Sunday in a row the $5 garage parking fee, long drive and crowds soon started to wear on my patience. So I did some online researching and found the Beverly Hills Farmers Market. It's the same time on Sundays as the Hollywood Farmers Market: 9 am to 1 pm. Parking is free. There were hardly any people there. Oh, and it's 5 minutes away from my house :)

The downside is that the market is significantly smaller than the Hollywood F.M.. However, it still has some of the same items as the larger markets. I spotted vendors selling:

- eggs and free range chicken 
- fresh (not frozen) seafood 
- hummus and cheese 
- Dave's Gourmet Korean food
- tacos
- grilled meat / sausages 
- crepes 
- a few vendors selling exclusively organic produce
- paninis
- homemade jerky
- flowers and plants

There were also four tables to eat at, and while we were eating a band was setting up to play.

I read on Yelp that in May there's a guy selling the most amazing organic cherries at this market, so I've got to keep an eye out for that in a couple of months!

Have you been to the Beverly Hills Farmers Market? What did you think of it? Leave me a comment below!


  1. Beverly Hills farmers market is great! My favorite though, is still the Brentwood Farmer's market. It's also on Sundays, you should go check it out!

  2. I've actually been to the Brentwood FM! I agree, the Brentwood one has more offerings. Haven't written a post about it, though. I need to go back to refresh my memory, but I do like the soup lady there who sells the frozen soups.

  3. OMG! I just stumbled across your blog via Pinterest. I have been looking for a blog about Cali, specifically L.A. I have plans of moving there this summer and I don't know anyone, so I will def be following your blog and checking out some of these places. Yeah!!

  4. Nice post and lots of information about the provided farmers market. thanks.

  5. @"You've got Mail": Thanks for the compliment! Good luck on your move and I hope this blog gives you some good ideas of places to check out :)

    @NFMA: Thanks! I love farmers markets

  6. Beverly Hills Farmers market has expanded, and now has more vendors. I find I can get everything I need here, Oganic vegetables, fresh fish, FR eggs, etc. I used to go to Santa Monica market on Saturdays, but have quit doing that as I find the BH market on Sunday to be better.
