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.
