Popular culture makes it seem as though Angelenos only get truly excited about a club opening. But we think that, in truth, it's a new farmers' market that really gets our collective engine going. This past Saturday saw the debut of one such market, in the parking lot of the Autry National Center in Griffith Park. Vendors already signed up for a stint were selling products ranging from honey to kale, cheese to berries, daikon to pastries. Food trucks also run the length of the market, and the museum's cafe will be open for brunch and mimosas. This is something of an elegant affair, and we're wondering: does the famed Hollywood Farmers' Market have some competition? Check out our photos, by the talented R.E., and tell us what you think.
