L.A.'s Original Farmers Market Cookbook

By JoAnn Cianciulli
Photographs by Karl Petzke

From its humble beginnings in 1934, L.A.'s Original Farmers Market has become one of the leading destinations in Southern California. And this comprehensive cookbook celebrates the food, people, and history of this Los Angeles landmark. Mexican, Brazilian, Middle Eastern, and old-fashioned American diner fare are all here, among many others. Readers can re-create more than 75 stand-in-line classics like Chilaquiles Verdes from ¡Lotería! Grill, Falafel Sandwiches from Moishe's, and finish up with decadent Chocolate Fudge from Littlejohn's English Toffee House. Vivid photographs and rare archival images bring the Market to life.

7 x 9-1/4 in; 272 pp ; 85 color photographs
