Tocaya Organica Restaurant Sunset Strip

Los Angeles has no shortage of great restaurants for Mexican cuisine. Around almost every corner there is a great sit down restaurant or a taco stand that has great food.

The Original Farmers Market in Hollywood

For over 84 years, The Original Farmers Market in Hollywood has been a local favorite.  Even their tagline is “Meet Me at Third and Fairfax.”  It’s at this intersection in 1934 that local farmers were invited to sell their goods off the back of trucks.  Soon after, merchants and grocers joined in, and opened permanent kiosks or stalls that acted as their restaurants and stores. Since that time, it’s remained a must-visit for neighbors, celebrities, and of course travelers to our city.  Everyone has visited this corner including Frank Sinatra, President Dwight Eisenhower, Marilyn Monroe, Ava Gardner, Shirley Temple, and The Beatles. To this day, you can still see your favorite celebs.  In fact, there’s a handful of tables by Bob’s
