Checked out the Hollywood Farmers' Market this past Sunday and I was so giddy walking through as my eyes are opening to a whole new world of bulk items that I never really paid attention to. I hit up Sustain La's booth and added a couple pours of their liquid lavender shampoo & conditioner to my glass jars (baby food jars!) and grabbed some natural loofahs too. So many natural options and friendly & very helpful folks there. Thanks for all you do! @sustain_la
I took my son in his stroller and it was a bit hectic as it was busy so maybe I'll go a couple times on my own to be able to get into a booth without a "pardon me", "oh sorry for running over your toes!", etc. I'm glad my son went though as it was a neat experience for bot of us. We scored some yummy sourdough bread, pita bread, celery, strawberries, apples and browsed other booths to check out their bulk items. This tea spot in the photo had spices as well, prepackaged but I asked if I'd be able to use my own jar and they said "of course!" I have plenty of spices now but good to know for future purchases. Then this produce spot had pretty cool beans, ones that I've never seen! The woman gave me the low down in their texture and what they are good for. Need to find some recipes before snagging some next time! I want to use up what I have now and not impulse buy so it was great to venture out and see what the market offered. Oh and parking at the ArcLight Cinema is the best option, as the market offers validation, $3 for 2 hrs...instead of the $10 I paid for what I thought was the actual "Farmers' Market parking".Womp womp. The information booth was very helpful in giving me the lowdown on parking, so I'll know next time. I definitely want to visit the actual Sustain La storefront in Highland Park soon too!
As I left the market my hubby called and let me know about Kobe and his daughter...man what a horrible event. The day just felt weird/off. My heart goes out to the family. May they watch over their family here and keep them safe. Hold your loved ones tighter.
