This weekend at LA Mart, Artisanal L.A. brings together community shopping, tasting, programming and learning experiences, showcasing Los Angeles’ finest local, sustainable, handmade edibles and home goods. Along with a pop-up urban garden, lectures, workshops ranging from pickling, cocktails, and baking to butchering with Lindy and Grundy and the intricacies of the Home Food Act, there’s a pop-up book shop where Nancy Silverton of Mozza and other food-focused authors will be signing their books. And of course there’s art (and crafts!), gift items, and a cafe showcasing local foods and beverages. The exciting two-day shopping event makes it easy for you to buy local, support LA’s economy (100% of vendors’ products are made right here in Southern California with local and sustainable goods), discover new favorites, get a jump on holiday shopping, and join in community while having a ball.
Admission to Artisanal LA is $12 in advance, $15 at the door, children under 10 free with paying adult. The ticket is good for both Saturday and Sunday, 11am to 6pm. The LA Mart is accessible by public transportation, and there is metered parking, or you can park in the lot for $15
