Farmer’s Market, Los Angeles.

In 1880, Arthur Fremont Gilmore and his friend purchased two dairy farms. After a while they split up and Gilmore got what is now called Farmer’s Market. It is spread in 256 acres and part of it was converted, when oil was discovered.

Today inside the market there are food stalls and about 100 restaurants. It is a landmark of the Los Angeles city. The original farmers market trolley also runs here (check out the video I shot on board). It truly is a fun place and more so on the weekends.

It was  a memorable experience being here.
