This Thursday, November 9, the First Annual Kitchen & Cooking Gala comes to the Westwood Farmers’ Market from 12:00 noon until 6:00pm. Hand-blocked table linens, bamboo bowls and cutting boards, and a variety of kitchen implements and crafts are expected at the festival.
The Westwood Farmers’ Market continues to add new food items, recently adding mixes for baked goods to the olive oils, balsamic vinegars, and Mediterranean spreads that accompany the fresh fruits, vegetables, breads, juices and other quality foods available each week. Food groups and cooking schools are invited to participate.
Live music continues at each market under the Music Tree in the Vets Garden with lots of picnic table seating. Vets Garden provides a shady sanctuary in the middle of urban, concrete Los Angeles, and it provides rehabilitation help for American veterans.
There is ample free parking, at the festival just off Sepulveda, one block north of Wilshire, at Constitution Avenue. There is a map and more information on the Westwood Farmers’ Market site, or you can request information by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The festival will be open rain or shine.
