Farmers market returning to Westwood Village

June 13, 2009 | 10:30 am

The popular Westwood Village farmers market is coming back.

The weekly market will open Wednesday from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Broxton Avenue in the heart of the village. It replaces the long-running Thursday market that shut down after construction began on Palazzo Westwood, a large mixed-use project by developer Alan Casden. A Sunday market operated in the village from last summer until December.

Stephen Whipple, who runs the Culver City market on Tuesdays, will manage the new Westwood operation. More than two dozen producers will offer fresh fruits and vegetables, flowers, plants, California beef and more. Live jazz music will be provided by Don Allen and his Spreadin' Rhythm 'Round trio.
