Ever walked around Highland Park?
There’s a lot to do & see, especially on historic Figueroa – & if you plan your walk around the Tuesday Highland Park farmers market, it becomes a really fun afternoon.
Let us know what you think!
We don’t usually chat about hot spots in ‘hoods, but a low key hang out with an outdoor bar (that wasn’t open yet when we walked by) is kind of worth mentioning // La Cuevita.
Just off Figueroa & Avenue 59 (Hayes Street) is some of the coolest, vintage L.A. inspired architecture. We didn’t want to be total weirdos taking pictures of everyones’ houses, yet it’s so worth a walk down this street.
Meanwhile down Avenue 58 & Figueroa…
Walk down the stairs for the prettiest view.

Have you ever seen Sunbeam Vintage‘s sign on Figueroa? For years, we have been meaning to pop in – So glad we finally did. Their store & warehouse are filled with vintage treasures, perfect for revamping your home.
We loved their vibe so much is was hard to stop taking pictures. Totally worth taking a peek.
Loved the sign & had to try one. Love that they mix up their flavors each day!
One guess where we are headed next?…
You guessed right – the Highland Park farmers market!
One of our favorite markets for so many reasons, you can literally walk right off the Metro Gold Line to the market (on Tuesdays).
There are always surprises at the market – over the years we have learned how to make a worm farm, compost & start new succulents from original plants (which you can buy at the Highland Park farmers market).
Lastly, we totally dig the Plant Food For People tacos.
Jack fruit tacos are insanely good & worth trying (even you “I-prefer-my-tacos-with-meat” eaters!)
Totally full from tacos & with fresh eggs in hand, it only made sense to venture over to Gimme Gimme Records, right?
Full disclosure, our record player broke, so we’ve been looking for a new one. Who knew it could be so complicated & possibly expensive, too? They were so helpful in the store & basically gave us every bit of scoop needed to know exactly what to buy – unfortunately they didn’t have it or we definitely would have bought it from them.
Problem solved & they have a great selection of vinyl, too!
We know that Highland Park is changing, yet it’s nice to see familiar shops mixed in with the new shops, too.
The Farmers Market has been a longtime, community market for years & Space Invaders still lives on Figueroa.
