Scenes from the Studio City Farmers' Market

The Studio City Farmers' Market is one of the most actively family-friendly in the city: in addition to all the produce and prepared-food vendors, there is a petting zoo, a moonbounce, an inflated slide, and a miniature train. Luckily for those of us who aren't small enough for these diversions, the market is currently full of lots of leafy greens such as spinach, chard, and bok choi, as well as roots like parsnips, beets, turnips, and radishes. Jerusalem artichokes also make a special appearance here.

Our favorites this week included dried Asian pears and persimmons from Fresno's Arnett Farms, and Fuji apples from Kingsburg's Island Farms. Givens Farm had the best selection -- or at least presentation -- of organic produce, with a table stacked high with fennel, cauliflower, and kale.
