Check out this great article from Kaia Bolster of Deep Roots Farm!
My name is Kaia, I am almost 13, and I live on my family’s farm where I raise laying hens. You would think I would have had my fill of farmers markets after attending at least one market each week (in season) throughout my life, but I’m still super excited for the Hollywood Farmers Market! The market is a perfect day trip, full of fun things to do. There’s live music, delicious food (including cinnamon rolls, doughnuts, and my personal favorite, ice cream), face painting, and there is even a Halloween parade. Plus the Hollywood Farmers Market staff and volunteers are probably the nicest around.
Another awesome thing about Hollywood Farmers Market is that it’s not super big and intimidating. It’s the perfect size; big enough to fit a HUGE variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, plus plenty good food and drinks you can have on the spot. But it’s small enough that it’s not a gigantic scavenger hunt to find what’s on your shopping list.
I have been going to farmers markets since I was a baby and the Hollywood Farmers Market is definitely my all-time favorite. I love everything about it: The buzz of the people coming and going, the smell of strawberries, the cool mist on my face from the sprinkler the Market puts out to cool people on hot days, and the thousands of different colors at the flower booths. I am sure you will have as much fun as I do at the Hollywood Farmers Market. The market starts on May 4th and I promise there will be strawberries! You can find me and my family at Deep Roots Farm!
