Though Downtown Los Angeles has always seemed like a busy city center during the work week, the region has often been criticized for offering little culture and entertainment during nights and weekends. Over the past few years, developers, planners and city officials have begun to bring life back to Downtown L.A. The new Spring Street Farmers Market, which will take place every Sunday beginning September 11, promises to continue this welcomed trend.
Downtown already hosts plenty of open-air fresh produce venues. However, these events are usually run during the week. The new market, which will be set in a parking lot adjacent to the Alexandria Hotel, will allow residents who are unable to make it to the weekday open-air venues to buy fresh fruit and vegetables in an area that still lacks a broad range of supermarket choices.
Many residents are excited about this market because it will be more than just a place to purchase fresh produce. With live jazz music, barbeques, and plenty of other types of vendors embracing the cultural diversity that only Los Angeles can offer, this venue, in the heart of the Historic Core, promises to be an exciting one.
One of the organizers of the event, real estate broker Carlos Vasquez, stated that they are still finalizing the list of vendors. Businesses can call (213) 293-4790 or email email@example.com, if they are interested in participating in the market. The market is to run from 9am to 3pm, every Sunday on the 500 block of South Spring Street.
