Photos: The 1937 Fall Festival At The Farmers Market
This weekend, the Original Farmers Market at Third and Fairfax will be holding their annual Fall Festival. The market was first opened in July of 1934, and was an instant hit: the first festival was held that very year among the brand-new stalls. The event is very kid-oriented these days, with a petting zoo and musical acts catering to the young set, but judging by these pictures, it was originally a celebration of buying produce and crafts. All of these photos were taken at the third Fall Festival, in 1937. That's before the clock tower was built!
