Here we are, nearly a full fortnight into the spring season and we're still slumping around in our tired winter raggies, bemoaning the chill grey skies and not thinking about warm winds or Easter or blowing soap bubbles or anything sweet at all.
But that happy land of outdoor eating and falafels and apple fritters and tourist- and local-pleasing trinketry, Farmers Market, is shaking off this early June Gloom with a weekend devoted to spring things. There's a family bent to the revelry, but we vow never to be too old for Easter egg decorating or the festooning of Matzoh covers (something we can say we've never done and are most intrigued by). There's a musical Passover performance, and, we're predicting, a general, flower-flavored conviviality to the proceedings.
We also have to pause and give a shout-out to Littlejohn's, the candy-maker extraordinaire that's called the FM home for decades and decades, for all those amazing chocolate eggs that are being whipped up as you read this. A tasty Los Angeles classic, the Littlejohn's egg.
April 4-5, 12-2PM
Farmers Market, 6333 W. Third Street, Los Angeles
