Several restaurants quickly sprang up in the in the market. (Someone had to feed all of those hungry farmers, after all.) Today there are more than 30 restaurants operating in Farmers Market, serving everything from fondue to falafel. The market is home to nearly every type of cuisine imaginable: Korean, Mexican, Greek, Japanese, Singaporean, French, Lebanese, and good old American are all represented, along with many more.
L.A.'s Original Farmers Market Cookbook is a collection of recipes from the restaurants and vendors of Farmers Market assembled by JoAnn Cianciulli. Each recipe in the book is prefaced by the story of the vendor who contributed it, some who have been there since the opening and some who have come later on in the market's history.
Every day this week we are going to be sharing a recipe from L.A.'s Original Farmers Market Cookbook with you. Here's peek of what we have on the menu for this week: Chilaquiles Verdes, Spanakopita, Potato Piroshki, and Hungarian Cinnamon Loaf.—Caroline Russock
