Market On Your Calendar!

You MUST put Yamashiro Farmers Market on your calendar for Thursday evenings!  The Market is set high on a peak in the Hollywood Hills with the most beautiful views of the city!  You can grab a glass of vino or a beer, sit and listen to live jazz, grab some grub at one of the many vendors (the most popular was the Yamashiro Grill Stand),  and purchase fruits and veggies for home!  The atmosphere is relaxed and family friendly.  It's run by the non-profit L.A. City Farm - if you go to their web site, they will give you a run down of which vendors will be at the market each week!  It is a Gourmond's dream!  Bulgarini Gelato, Gourmet on Wheels, Long Shot Coffee and Espresso, Roeckenwagner Breads and Pastries, and my new FAVORITE CHOCOLATE:  CHOCOVIVO!!!  If you've never tried Chocovivo, you MUST check them out - the flavors literally explode in your mouth!  We bought Mayan Tradition, Orange & Cloves, Coffee & Vanilla and Shangri-LA - I couldn't even pick a favorite because they are all AMAZING!
This place makes the perfect date night - Big Daddy and I certainly had one!
