Corned Beef and Cabbage at Mar Vista Farmers’ Market March 15, 2015

St. Patrick’s Day is Tuesday 3/17, and the Mar Vista Farmers’ Market is the perfect place to get your cabbage and corned beef, although what’s pictured here is beef brisket from Diamond Mountain Ranch; you’d have to make it all corny yourself. Here’s a recipe I found on Pinterest:

The kids made St. Patrick’s Day crafts like this hat.

The Moynahan Brothers Irish Band played some lovely Irish tunes, in keeping with the St. Patty’s day theme.

The Dog Bakery had a booth today. Did you know they literally bake dog treats in their store? It’s so cool!

And have you ever left your dog at the Dog Walker Extraordinaire booth? They babysit your dog in shade and comfort with plenty of water for a few minutes while you shop that market. See, the Health Department doesn’t allow dogs to walk in the market, so this keeps everyone safe and sound.

And I met Todd Darling, the filmmaker behind Occupy the Farm, a documentary which tells the story of 200 urban farmers who plant 2 acres of crops on a publicly owned research farm in order to save the land from becoming a real-estate development. The film will be shown locally at the Royal Theater in West LA on Wednesday, April 1st at 7:30pm.
