Our dad was a “foodie.”
Not the fancy or top-reviewed restaurant type, but definitely the “will drive three hours for just-out-of-the-oven loaf of bread type.”
As kids we loved the road trips & walking portions of his hunts for good food all around the Seattle area… hamburgers in Aberdeen, fresh bread in Black Diamond, & dim sum at our (still) favorite place, Sun Ya (located in the I.D. of downtown Seattle, but now called something else).
All cool places in Washington, with an original, local flavor & vibe.
As adults, we started to appreciate the fresh food part just as much as the road trips & walking.
Since we like eating our way through Los Angeles, we find delicious stuff along the way.
For those of you that think peanut butter is just peanut butter, you’ve never tried theirs…
At the H.F.M. & other Los Angeles area farmers’ markets, it’s the best of the best. Everything just tastes GOOD.
Chili oil, hot sauces & fresh salsas from El Machete.
Is it the hand roasted chilis that make their sauces perfect?
Organic tortillas from A Kernel of Truth
Try their blue corn masa (any time you can track it down!)
Freshly made & locally sourced jams & pickled goods from Coldwater Canyon Provisions
Try the pickled watermelon rinds & sweet red pepper jam.
We’ll also admit that we’re not beyond running over to Bub & Grandmas for their second bread drop-off at 10:30 a.m.
Who are your favorites at the Hollywood Farmers’ Market?
There’s just too many for us to list out, so we suggest you going there & tasting everything for yourself.
Keep us posted!
