Farmers Market to Open at The Autry in Griffith Park

The Saturday market will offer a range of activities for the whole family.

A new farmers market at The Autry National Center in Griffith Park is set to open Saturday

From 8 a.m. to noon, expect live music, fresh produce and prepared foods on the grounds. Organizers will also have family games ready for use. Think ping pong, bocce ball and frisbee.

For adults, take your pick between a Bloody Mary and mimosa bar at The Autry Cafe or gain running or cycling tips during clinics sponsored by A Runner’s Circle and Velo.

The market will have about 16 local and organic farmers and more. Confirmed vendors include Tutti Frutti Farms, Underwood  Family Farms, Avila & Sons Farms, Milkman Artisan Cheeses, Homeboy Bakery, Novy Ranch,  Cobblermania, and Longshot Espresso, according to a news release.

Autry members will receive a 10 percent off discount upon showing their membership card at any of the vendor booths.

Let's hope they promote bringing your own reusable bags and ban plastic and styrofoam from their market, that type of waste totally ruins the experience for me.

George is right. I'm constantly picking up trash from inconsiderate people on the hiking and climbing trails in Griffith Park. One more source of plastic, styrofoam and napkins inside the park is a bad, bad idea.
