NoHo Arts District Farmers Market Starts Today

After 2 1/2 years of planning, Carol Wyner is pleased to announce the new weekly event.

The NoHo Arts District will be getting its very own farmers market today.

The weekly festival will take place on Bakman Avenue in front of , and will feature plenty of organic food, live music and community resource booths.

Carol Wyner, who is on the Midtown NoHo Neighborhood Council, as well the board of directors of the charity and the advisory and founding boards of the , spoke with Patch Monday about the new farmers market, which she is organizing and will be managing.

"We have been trying to [get] a farmers market in this community for 15 years now," said Wyner. "No one has been relentless enough to fight the bureaucracy, because that's what it took. ... It has taken 2 1/2 years to get it going."

pub has offered its spacious parking lot for farmers market customers to use. The music will be provided by the California Pop and Jazz Council on one end, and a 10-piece marimba band on the other. There will also be a dog-sitting booth for folks who want to bring their pups to the market but would like time to wander around on their own.

Wyner said many people and organizations were involved in helping and supporting her, including Mary Garcia, the president, Los Angeles City and his Toluca Lake/North Hollywood Deputy District Director Alice Roth, Diane and Guy Weddington-McCreary of the , and the NoHo Business Improvement District.

The market will be held Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. If you are interested in being a vendor, send an email to apps@nohomarket.org or call 818-314-1312.

A website with more info, nohomarket.org, is in the works and will be up and running soon.

Patch will be there; you should be, too!

The Toluca Lake market happens on Sundays, and the NoHo market is planned for Saturdays, so hopefully we will see some of the same vendors at both and both will prosper.
