We spent a morning walking around Hollywood and found this wonderful Sunday farmer’s market. Located off Hollywood Blvd south on Ivar Ave, this is a must visit for anyone looking for a little of the authentic in the land of the hype and glitz.
There was plenty of organics to be had and, with the warm California sun, mid-June showed lots of fresh vegetables and fruits.
We really slathered at the aroma of the street foods as we had developed a taste for pupusas during trip to Nicaragua a few years back. These thick corn tortillas are filled with cheese, or a tasty mix of cheese, beans and chicharon. They take a long time to prepare so are not usually served in fast food type takeaways.
Mushrooms of great variety were available as were large tables of fresh cut herbs to season.
You can also buy California olive oils at this market and they are fresh and aromatic. Some are infused with herbal flavours and that set us off in another trip to see the olive groves and pressing facilities.
