Farmers Market & The Grove

Farmers Market L.A.-002
After our spectacular dinner at Fig & Olive we went to the Farmers Market and The Grove to walk off all the calories we consumed. It was also my first time to see these two places next to each other.

During the day the Farmers Market had tenants selling organic produce, meats, poultry and seafood. But at night the restaurants and food stalls are the destination of hungry people.

I haven’t seen retro aluminum and wood folding chairs like these in decades.

We were planning to eat at Short Order the next day for Sunday brunch but changed our minds at the last minute. This will be on my list for my next trip to L.A.

We then walk to the nearby outdoor mall called The Grove. If you watch the tv show Extra you will hear the host, Mario Lopez, say, “we’re here live at The Grove.”

My nephew Kenjie is 14 and is already taller than me. The next time I see him he’ll probably be 6 ft.
