What we found was University Park & unexplored streets in West Adams – totally walkable blocks filled with old street art & old-school L.A. architecture.
Starting on Vermont & 23rd, on the corner of a tree-lined street – where we saw this street art piece.
Vintage L.A.- we love it.
Just right off Vermont on 23rd, we had to pull over to check it out. Anyone else spotted this before?
There’s a lot of great local organizations in L.A. like #BeautifyEarth & #SmileSouthCentral that are replacing dilapidated walls with murals & art by local street artists.
This area was originally home to some of the most expensive properties in L.A. & a lot of the properties are maintained really well. Everywhere you walk, you notice Craftsman homes, Victorians, & so many different architectural styles from different L.A. eras.
Ever tried Privileged Valley Juices? We chatted up Alfonso at the Adams Vermont Farmers Market- who was super friendly & of course offered us some free fresh juices because we were volunteering at the market that day for Hunger Action Los Angeles (HALA) & Market Match.
HALA & Market Match offers assistance to low income seniors on social security insurance, as well as provides matching funds for those on public assistance to buy fruits & vegetables from the local farmers at the farmers market. You can find them there weekly at the Wednesday market.
Grab a freshly-roasted bag of peanuts, farm fresh fruits & veggies, or chat up market manager Harry – this market is truly for the local community & everyone knows each other by first name. Don’t worry, they’re super-friendly to strangers (like us!).
Every adventure we have around the Adams Vermont Farmers Market is always fun – did you see our other adventures we had near there? Check them out below:
