Hey everyone, does anyone go to the Silver Lake Farmers' Market? I did a little research and people say that you can get good prices because you cut out the middle man... do you find that's true?

Does anyone know the exact streets the market is on? I've found websites that say it's on Sunset between Maltman and Edgecliff, but from my research on Flickr.com, I also suspect it's between on Griffith Park Blvd. between Edgecliff and Sunset... is that true?

Also, where do people typically park? As a soon-to-be resident, I'd like to know where people park to know if it causes a problem for residents (I can't believe people park only on Sunset, but also into the neighborhoods), as well as noise levels.

Any information would be much appreciated... thanks!

In my opinion, I like the farmer's market off Sunset in Hollywood (on Sundays) much more. It is much larger and has a greater amount of vendors (They basically close off about 4 street lengths). Parking is free for an hour or so when you park at the ArcLight theater's structure -- you just need to get validated.

I try to do most of my shopping for vegetable/flowers at farmer's market -- It's been a habit of ours since we were in NYC and now LA where there are always farmer's markets available throughout the week. On average it is not only cheaper, but also much more fresh and obviously local -- plus many of the vendors sell only organic produce.

Thanks for the info LARenter! I still can't believe they actually close off Sunset Blvd... I know that Sat mornings aren't that busy, but Sunset seems like such a major thoroughfare - then again, I'm sure it's easy to find alternate routes.

From your experience, what's the Silver Lake Farmers' Market like? Just smaller?

You are right, the street that is blocked off is Griffith Park Blvd where it splits off from Sunset. That creates a small triangle just north of Sunset where the vendors set up. It's a nice little farmers market but the selection is limited. I'm not sure how good their prices are. As previously posted, the Hollywood farmers market on Sunday is much bigger, and packs more entertainment punch too.

So is the triangle Griffith Park, Sunset, and Edgecliff?

Thanks!

Yes, that's it. There's some grass and a fountain and a couple of tables in the median. Park on Sunset or side streets. It's not very disruptive. That stretch of the boulevard is pretty busy already.

Thank you CubanCoffee! I'm a little worried because we will be living kind of close to the market and I'm wondering where people typically park. I suppose since it's on the smaller side, it won't necessarily be as disruptive to our parking situation.
