Farewell and a Farmers Market

Baked Goods by Jinou Edible Art

My final hours in Los Angeles were spent strolling through the farmers market in Studio City. Vendors there hawk your typical produce and seafood fare plus a few surprises like designer snow cones and $4 cupcakes I hear are worth the price. One tasty find was the baked goodness offered up by Jinou Edible Art. We bought two wheat free cakelets and a chocolate souffle fresh fruit tart.

The real joy of the morning was meeting Michael Wells of Cattle Headquarters. He was a treat to talk to and sells teriffic dishtowels, napkins, tablecloths and aprons at a great price. I picked up retro farm advertising styled dishtowels and am kicking myself for not bringing home his California printed apron. You'll enjoy his flour and feed sack inspired designs. Anything from Cattle Headquarters would make a terrific hostess gift alone or paired with a bottle of wine. I plan to make my LA friend shop for me by proxy for Christmas gifts before I visit her again.

So much to see in Los Angeles and the surrounding area! If you have tips on a great place to check out, leave a comment and I'll schedule it into my next trip!
