The LA Farmers Market has been owned by the Gilmore family for six generations.  In 1880 Arthur Gilmore first operated the land as a dairy farm, then in 1934 two entrepreneurs came up with an idea for farmers to rent space and sell their produce from the Gilmore property. The concept became wildly popular, permanent stalls were erected, then restaurants followed.

Sample gourmet cheese, handmade icecream, exotic spices, english toffee, imported teas, and spicy sauces.  Yum!
