LA is a city full of hidden gems, and we’re about to expose one of the most sparkly gems of all!

Every Thursday from 5-9 pm atop a grand hill off Franklin waits a gathering of locals (maybe a few tourists) all sipping on wine, listening to live music and watching the sun set over our city of angels.  It’s the Yamashiro Farmer’s Market!

Many of you have probably experienced the tourist-heavy, semi-romantic dining that the famed sushi spot Yamashiro has to offer,  and if you’ve ever taken a stroll through the gardens you definitely know how breathtaking they are.  Now, just imagine the gardens filled with vendors selling their home-grown foods and wares amidst live music and a happy public. The entire vibe is very quaint and European – and definitely worth a visit.


I personally ALWAYS make it a point to stop by John Joseph Design for unique fashion jewelry, I never fail to buy something!


The different vendors are all so friendly and genuine, you’ll want to come and buy from them every week.

Cheers to the Yamashiro Farmer’s Market and hope to see you next Thursday!
