New Autry farmers market to open in Griffith Park
A weekly farmers market is coming to Griffith Park at the Autry National Center, known for its museum of the American West. Across from the L.A. Zoo, Griffith Observatory Satellite and the Municipal Golf Course, the farmers market kicks off on Saturday, April 28, from 8 a.m. to noon, with about 16 local and organic farmers, including Tutti Frutti Farms, Underwood Family Farms and Avila & Sons Farms.
Food vendors such as Milkman Artisan Cheeses, Homeboy Bakery, Novy Ranch, Cobblermania and Longshot Espresso will offer gourmet cheeses, hummus, honey, almond butter, coffee and more. And Heirloom LA, Global Soul and the Crepe Kitchen will be there with their prepared foods.
Autry members get a 10% discount when they show their membership card at any of the vendor booths.
