The Original Farmers Market welcomes farmer Rick Dominguez and Rick’s Produce Market, opening on Friday, Jan. 29. Dominguez has more than 14 years of organic farming experience and will offer fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables from his family farm in Fallbrook, California.
In 2017, Dominguez opened his first storefront in Silver Lake. During the past several months, Rick’s Produce Market also operated out of a temporary stall at the Farmers Market, and will open in its new permanent location on the south side of the market in stall #126, across from Marconda’s Puritan Poultry and T&Y Bakery. Dominguez will offer seasonal and freshly-picked produce sustainably grown without chemicals on his family farm, as well as produce from other small local farms. Rick’s Produce Market will also offer hand-made guacamole, salsas, smoothies, juices, acai bowls, jams, made-to-order sandwiches and more. Stop by from Jan. 29-31 and receive a 10% discount.
“I was honored when the management of the Original Farmers Market approached me about opening a second, larger location at Third and Fairfax,” Dominguez said. “This has been Los Angeles’ go-to spot for groceries since 1934 when farmers first sold their goods from the back of pick-up trucks. I am thrilled to play a part in the market’s continuing legacy.”
“Rick’s Produce is a fantastic, new addition to our grocery program,” added Stan Savage, executive vice president of the A.F. Gilmore Company, owner of the Original Farmers Market. “Rick and his family have taken such care in cultivating their farm’s crops and developing their brick-and-mortar produce business. They are truly emblematic of the entrepreneurial spirit that our family-owned businesses have thrived on for 86 years and we look forward to their long and continued success at the market.”
Rick’s Produce will be open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., daily. Online orders for home delivery can be made by visiting the Original Farmers Market’s page at mercato.com.
