  1. This is such a good round up of the Little Italy Farmer’s Market 😀 I usually go to the Hillcrest one because parking is a tiny bit easier. I think the Little Italy one has more produce and products to cook with while the Hillcrest one is more ready food.

    And I must try breakfast at Monello. I saw that croissant on your Instagram and was wondering where it came from!

      Hi JS! I went early enough that parking wasn’t an issue, luckily. For the Hillcrest one we usually go late and try to score on deals. Yes, you must try Monello their food is so delicious!

  2. Ooh, pistachio custard! Must try that! I know Bert would love that. The Cravory has such a great selection of flavors. I just wish they weren’t so expensive.

      Hi CC – The pistachio custard was really yummy, I enjoyed it a lot! Next time I want to get it in the donut instead. I just ate samples at the Cravory, their cookies are really good but I agree, it is pricey. Good for special occasions!

    I LOVE this farmers market but HATE the parking. I once drove all the way there to meet a friend and the angrily drove home after 20 min of unsuccessfully finding parking. I think there’s a decent affordable paid parking lot nearby though? I agree there are lots of samples to try at this market and it’s also so dog friendly. I want to see you try live sea urchin there. What says you. Yes? Ok yes.

      I don’t wanna eat things that are alive. 🙁

      I’m sure I would also hate the parking if I hadn’t left home at 8:30am. Going late is probably killer. I did notice a high amount of doggies whereas other markets have signs that say “no dogs” which makes me sad. I wonder why some are dog friendly and others aren’t. Doesn’t make sense to me.
