Your Guide to Los Angeles’s East Side Farmers Markets

Garlic is on its way out. Out of season, I mean. In California, it’s easy for it to seem we have a constant supply of fresh fruits and vegetables no matter the season because so much of what we buy at our grocery stores travels such great distances to reach us. So there’s always been a soft spot in my heart for farmers markets and organic produce sold by local and regional growers. Afterall, What small town would be complete without a weekly Farmers Market? Luckily, the east side of Los Angeles makes up several small towns (the neighborhoods feel like small towns anyway) and so it offers several farmers markets where you can find a wide variety of  affordably-priced fruits, vegetables, honey, herbs, bread, flowers, vintage clothing, arts & crafts, and more.

Everyone from local families who live in the neighborhood to some of Southern California’s most respected chefs use our farmers markets as their weekly food source and walk-in pantry. And once you visit any of the markets on our list below it’s easy to see why: vine-ripened and tree-ripened local produce is way tastier than your average grocery supply, you can feel good about eliminating packaging and plastic waste, it’s amazing to know the people who grow your food by name, and so much more. It’s simply amazing to buy food from passionate people who value sustainable agricultural practices.

Below you will find the definitive list of all of Los Angeles’s east side farmers markets that specialize in every crop that’s grown seasonally around our great state of California, for every day of the week. Except for Mondays for some curious reason. That must be the day of rest for our local growers.

So what’s in season this September? Dates. Lemons. Grapefruits. Cantaloupes. Pears. Prunes. Strawberries. Artichokes. Avocados. Potatoes. Spinach. Find a great list of seasonal fruits and vegetables here.
