Raise a glass and join Slow Food members and friends in a toast to this exciting project while sampling the bounty of California. Located in the heart of Hollywood, The Farmer’s Kitchen will be a commercial teaching, processing, and retail kitchen for the sale of prepared food and farm-fresh produce. The revenue from the Farmer’s Kitchen will support nutrition education programs and to provide job training in food preparation for Hollywood’s low-income residents. As an extension of the Hollywood Farmers’ market it will create a daily source of healthy, affordable food for Hollywood residents of all income levels.

Enjoy an array of wines, organic and sustainable, as well as a California cheese buffet, olives, chocolates and other delicacies. Meet some of the vendors from the Hollywood Farmers’ Market and learn more about The Farmer’s Kitchen, which will be a great addition to the community.
