Hollywood Farmer's Market on Sunday at Ivar and Selma (a little long)

kevin | Jun 25, 2006 08:55 PM

Anyways, tried out this hollywood farmer's market again. and it might just be the best after santa monica's wed. market on arizona.

I got there too late (maybe a hair or so before 10am) and they were already out of the Persian Mulberries at Circle C ranch stand. Completely gone. Asked her if they would have it on Wednesday, and she said they should. it's about 10 dollars per box, or 70 for the whole slate.
They also have sour cherries here for 9 dollars per pound.

i tried the rasberries from Harry's Berries today, they were ok, nothing truly special, but one of the berries in the little plastic box had already turned to delicious jam, a nice little gem.

There's stand serving stand serving greek food called Kahilla's International foods, and I tried a lamb gyro there, and it was pretty good, excpet for the fact that the meat was a kabab/skewer instead of slices of gyro meat from a roasting turning spit. is this standard?

also, had a green papaya salad from Sir Winston's thai food stand, it was nice, not as spicey as I had wanted it. And an order of Kanom Krok (aka coconut cakes or coconut pancakes) to wash it down. these were coconuty and liquid-y/milky in the center, is this standard or is it usually cooked all the way thru like an actual cake.

There's a lady serving Jamaican treats like Jamaican patties and also a Loussiania gumbo in a couple different sizes on the other side of the market.

I tried some lime ade from the stand serving Solvang's famous donut balls with straberry jam and powdered sugar called someting like shanfelshipitz.

I tried some blackberries and boysenberries from some other stands (samples) and they just weren't that great today.
