Vintage Photo Friday

1955, Original Farmers Market, 3rd and Fairfax, L.A.

Many of you know that Larry and I live near the Original Farmers Market.  We spend lots of time there.  What started out as a truck farm for local farmers and growers in 1934 has turned into an eating and dining entertainment center.  I like to call The Market the "vortex" of Los Angeles.  Eventually, everyone gets sucked into the place!
I spend almost every Thursday night at The Market with my local Stitch 'n Bitch group.  We meet in the upstairs dining area to knit and/or crochet, eat dinner and generally talk endlessly about yarn!
1955.  Sundeck @ Original Farmers Market

After perusing a few photos from the 1950's on Image-Archeology.com I've discovered that our upstairs dining area was originally the Sundeck!  I suppose the sun was just too strong or there must have had a heavy rainy season one year, so eventually the sun deck was roofed over and became our upstairs dining room.....perfect for weekly yarny meet-ups, rain or shine!  I love that this area is protected from the elements, but still open-air.
Here are a few photos I snapped last night of our West Hollywood Stitch 'n Bitch group.  We do have fun!  Join us any Thursday, 7-9pm!





If you've never visited the Original Farmers Market at 3rd and Fairfax in Los Angeles, GO THERE!!!  It's a one-of-a-kind hangout in the middle of L.A.  There are free music performances, great restaurants and excellent people-watching opportunities.  You'll love it.

When I was a teenager, The Farmer's Market was a "must see" for visiting relatives. We loved when we saw a chauffeur with a shopping list in his hand...shades of the rich and famous. Your knitting group looks well attended...and more stitching then bitching!
