Friday Night - Time for the Eagle Rock Farmer's Market!!
It's Friday night in Northeast Los Angeles, once again time for the Eagle Rock Farmers Market . Located at the intersection of Merton and Caspar Avenue, the market is a great way to get out and meet your fellow Angelenos, and enjoy this beautiful September evening weather. On any given week, the market has everything from play jumpers and arts and crafts for the kids, to kettle corn, funnel cakes, sno-cones, and endless variety of fruits and vegetables, as well as full dinners, with the juices of roasting chickens dripping into the pit, and hickory smoke wafting into the air. As you get closer, you're likely to hear an Elvis impersonator belting out "Blue Sueds Shoes" or "Viva Las Vegas", to the delight of the crowd.
The Farmers market has become an Eagle Rock institution over the last decade, and is packed every Friday. Here you can also find fresh flowers, honey, jewelry - even tube socks!! The fruit and vegetable vendors also carry seasonal items such as strawberries, blackberries and rasberries, as well as apples, blueberries, pomegranates, peaches, pears, plums, tomatoes, avocados, carrots, potatoes, lettuce, squash, plums, and the list goes on and on...
The market it always a fun place, and it is great to get out and enjoy the people in the community and support local businesses!
What better time and place to do it than on a Friday night in Southern California!!??
The Eagle Rock Farmer's Market is located at the intersection of Merton Avenue and Caspar Avenue, one block south of Colorado Boulevard and one block east of Eagle Rock Boulevard - open every Friday from 5:00 PM to 9:00 PM.
Come on out & enjoy the fun!!!
