Melrose Place Farmer’s Market
Address: 8400 Melrose Ave West Hollywood located between La Cienega Blvd and Orlando Avenue.
When: Sundays 10am-2pm
Parking: Surrounding area on streets
Description: A smaller farmer’s market that has a relaxed community vibe. Find fresh fruit and veggies, pastries, bread, products from local farmers, jewelry and beautiful blooms.
I love this farmer’s market location because the size is not too big for an easy stroll pass the vendors. My favorite vendor located in about the middle across from Alred Tea Room is Euphoria Flowers. Euphoria flowers sells premade premium rose bouquets for $10 and $20. The flowers are from certified to be American grown right from San Luis Obispo. Liz at the Melrose Place market is always so nice in cutting down the rose stems even further to fit my reusable shopping bag and wrapping them up in paper for easy transport. The blooms are beautiful in mass and are such a deal compared to other prices. Many of the colors and types of roses are not even carried by a local florist. It is nice to be able to pick out your own flowers to give to a breast cancer survivor or someone who is bravely battling breast cancer right now.
