All the Best Food & Wine From The Taste Los Angeles

The Labor Day Holiday weekend saw thousands of us flock to Paramount Studios in Los Angeles to spend three glorious evenings eating, drinking, sampling and savoring from LA’s best restaurants at the Taste, the Los Angeles Times annual food festival. The Taste has become Los Angeles’s de facto, signature food and wine festival. And for good reason. At no other festival in Los Angeles will you find such an extraordinary roster of restaurants. It’s the perfect event to cross off your 2018 restaurant “must” list in one weekend.

This year’s event paid special tribute to the late, legendary Jonathan Gold. Dozens of chefs created dishes in honor of the Pulitzer Prize winning critic. What a joy to discover so many hidden gems! For those of you couldn’t make it – here are a few of the many highlights from the festival. Your next dinner reservation starts here.

Hope to see you at next year’s Taste!

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.
