The Hollywood Farmers’ Market, founded in 1991, was one of just a few farmers’ markets in all of California when it opened for business on May 5 of that year. It became an immediate success – bringing together farmers and producers from as close as Ventura County and as far away as the Central San Joaquin region.
Today, the Market hosts 160 farmers, producers and food artisans who specialize in every crop that’s grown seasonally around the state and a large variety of culinary perspectives and practices from around the globe. Everyone from local families who live in the neighborhood to some of Southern California’s most respected chefs use the Market as their weekly food source and walk-in pantry.
The Hollywood Farmers’ Market is also a community meeting place with a wide-range of activities and offerings that include live music, activities for children, a rich and varied offering of artisans selling their handmade arts and crafts and book-signings by some of the most celebrated authors in the food world.
At the market, you can use your EBT money to purchase your groceries; and WIC and Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program checks (FMNP) are also accepted. Stop by the information booth for more details!
