Thanksgiving Fixings at the Mar Vista Farmers’ Market November 23rd, 2014

The market was crowded this morning with all the extra shoppers out for the Big Cooking Event coming up: Thanksgiving! Hope you’re all planning to enjoy a lovely meal with friends and/or family – and don’t forget to come shop local at our Small Business Shopping Day on the 29th! Pop-Up Mar Vista!

Here are all the elements of a traditional Thanksgiving meal: Potatoes, sweet potatoes, bread, onions, garlic (in my house, anyway), pies, herbs, and of course veggies!

By the way, the bread above is from the Frogs Organic Bakery, and they also make these terrific-looking pastries. More Yum!

And in case you wanted a break from all the Turkey-related food, the Grilled Cheese truck had the classic Mac-n-Cheese Grilled cheese sandwich.

And Mike Bonin’s office is partnering with the Mar Vista Farmers Market to collect food donations for the Westside Food Bank – drop-off locations here at the market and at Mike Bonin’s CD 11 offices in West LA and Westchester.
