Mussels at Hollywood Farmers Market?

Barham Turner | Feb 17, 2006 12:14 PM

Ecomar, an outfit in Goleta, used to sell superb mussels at the Hollywood Farmers Market. They haven't been there in a couple of years. I can't find Ecomar on the internet and their phone number is disconnected. Does anyone know what happened to them?

The guy who started Ecomar began by cleaning barnacles and mussels off oil rigs off the coast of Santa Barbara. Then he went into mussel farming. They were great Mediterranean mussels and very inexpensive. (Maybe too inexpensive, if he went belly-up!)

Alternatively, is there another L.A. farmers market that has a vendor selling similar quality mussels? TIA.
