For a few hours nearly every Friday afternoon, the Echo Park Farmers’ Market transforms an oil-stained parking lot into a colorful food bazzar and gathering spot. This Friday, Oct. 21, the market will celebrate its fifth anniversary with its annual salsa making contest and other activities Market manager Holly Calhoun provided more information about what to expect at Friday’s birthday party:
Festivities will include our fifth annual Seize the Sizzle salsa contest, a free cooking demonstration showcasing seasonal market produce (free samples!), free Anniversary Carrot Cake from The Farmer’s Kitchen, live music by Marissa Gomez and the Ghosts of Echo Park, and of course, farm fresh, locally grown produce, delicious prepared foods, and handmade crafts from local vendors!
The carrot cake will be cut at 5 p.m., and the Seize the Sizzle contest (entries still be accepted) will be held at 6 p.m.
