What to Know
Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Have a desire to call upon ever food hall in town, in the region, in the state?
The sort of savory-to-sweet spots that boast breads of quality, desserts on the high end of delectable, vegetarian offerings punchy with spicy wow, and cheesy, meaty, fill-up foods, too?
It's a gourmand goal of lots of people nowadays, as the food hall scene continues on the up and up and up. Best add to those multiple ups, for the latest stroll-around 'n sup to-do is popping up, starting on Sept. 22, at the Sportsmen's Lodge in Studio City.
Say hello to the Valley Urban Market, a "weekly open-air food experience" featuring the flavorful foodstuffs of Hearth & Olive, Lobsterdamus, Dina's Dumplings, and several more local favorites.
Founded by "longtime friends and native Valley girls Megan Gefsky, Deborah Saly, and Jordan Grohl," the every-Saturday Valley Urban Market will include, in addition to a line-up of stylish yet nummy noshes, "comfortable seating, a DJ, a photo booth, air-brush tattooing, balloon art and more."
The cost to enter the Studio City snack fest? It's five dollars, and a portion of each entry will be donated to the Valley Food Bank. Do bring extra bucks for all of the bites you'd like to try, of course.
Will there be a lot of 818-a-tude and valley pride, among the vendors, cuisine-creative pros, and those who show to give attendees a super day out in the sunshine?
Count on it: This will be an under-the-sky food hall that has its roots firmly planted in the SFV.
