californian adventure: this little piggy went to market



my favorite LA stop was the farmers market on fairfax and third. i know a lot of people wouldn't be so excited at the prospect of going on holiday to see a market, but when food and history are in your top interests its hard to resist! it opened in 1934 and has long been a haunt of hollywoods brightest stars. i loved all the old signage, the amazing choice of foods, and just the general ambience. a picture paints a thousand words, so...














i really urge you to visit if you can, its the sweetest place. also there's a cajun food stand where you can get alligator meat. they should change the market's slogan to 'come for the ambience, stay for the alligator'. you're welcome, board of tourism.
