We plan to buzz by the 11th annual Taste of Farmers Market starting at 5-9 p.m at Original Farmers Market at Third and Fairfax who is celebration of a major milestone – 85 years as LA’s favorite gathering place. It’s a great way to quite literally “taste” all the offerings at the from the Market’s beloved restaurants and some new ones that have recently opened. There will also be live entertainment. Proceeds go the the the First-In Fire Foundation and local firehouse stations 61 & 58, who will be serving up meat-lovers and vegetarian chili prepared by firehouse chefs.

Adult tickets include more than 50 samples, two non-alcoholic drink tickets, free parking and beer and wine samples (for those 21and over) from Figueroa Mountain Brewing Company and Cobblestone Wine. The event’s official water sponsor, Icelandic Glacial™ – “the purest tasting water on Earth,” will provide bottled water for all guests.

Kids tickets, for those 10 and under, will provide 10 tastes and 1 drink ticket, and include a copy of the Farmers Market coloring book. A 10% discount is also available for adult group ticket purchases of 10 or more.
