A new sign reminiscent of the 1930s and 1940s was recently installed at the Original Farmers Market, corner of Third and Fairfax.
The sign is just east of Starbucks on the Third Street side of the market, where construction is occurring for spaces that will house new grocery merchants, including a new produce purveyor, said Ilysha Buss, director of marketing for the Original Farmers Market. The new sign was designed by Carol Newsom, of Newsom Gonzalez in the Fairfax District, and was built by Paul Stoaks, of Signmakers in downtown Los Angeles.
“The sign has been in the works for almost three years between design and the city approval process,” Buss said. “We’re so excited to see it up.”
The Original Farmers Market remains open during the ongoing public health emergency, with restaurants, butcher shops, a grocery store, post office and other essential businesses ready to serve. Many of the restaurants are offering take-out and delivery of prepared meals. The grocers are stocked with essentials such as meat, dairy and produce, as well as items for the pantry and specialty foods.
The market is offering many options for Passover and Easter. Head to Marconda’s Puritan Poultry or Farmers Market Poultry for free-range chicken for matzo ball soup, and fresh eggs to hard boil as an essential item on Seder plates. Farm Boy Produce and Farm Fresh Produce have sweet apples for a homemade charoset, a mixture of fruits, nuts, spices and wine. Monsieur Marcel Gourmet Market offers a selection of Kosher wine.
For Easter brunch, the market features fresh baked bread, pastries and carrot cake from Michelina Artisan Boulanger. Huntington Meats & Sausage and Marconda’s Meats offer spiral ham and leg of lamb. Their staff members can provide cooking tips to ensure a perfect main course on the holiday table. Magic Nut & Candy Co. has countless varieties of treats.
