Taste of Farmers Market is back and “All Fired Up” Popular annual festival adds new partner and kids’ tickets
The Original Farmers Market is gearing up for the eighth annual Taste of Farmers Market event, which will be held from 5 to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, July 19 with a feast of more than 50 delicious summertime food and beverage samples from Market grocery, restaurant and specialty food merchants.
For this year’s event, the Market is pleased to partner with a local non-profit First-In Fire Foundation, who are “Friends of the Fire Department and Fire Service,” and firefighters from Stations 61 and 68, in Battalion 18, South Bureau LAFD – the Farmers Market’s neighboring firehouses. Special additions to this year’s lineup include firehouse chili tastes prepared by Station 61 and 68 chefs themselves, a shiny red fire truck and a community activity table.
Featured menu items in past years have included mouthwatering treats such as tri-tip sandwiches, New Orleans shrimp, Greek salad, truffle mac & cheese, root beer floats, chocolate mousse and much more. This year’s complete menu, which will include a variety of tastes for both meat-lovers and vegetarians, will be announced soon.
Adult tickets are $35 in advance or $40 at the door, and a special $10 kids’ ticket (10 tastes for 10 and under) will be offered this year, too. All adult tickets also include two drink coupons good for a variety of non-alcoholic beverages, and beer and wine samples. Advance purchase is highly recommended. Tickets are now available on farmersmarketla.com or in person at the Farmers Market Office located at 6333 W. 3rd Street, Los Angeles, CA 90036, on the second level above Gate One (open until 7 p.m. daily).
A 10 percent discount is available for group purchases of 10 or more. Admission also includes free parking for the event in the Farmers Market surface lots or The Grove parking structure.
