Top 10 Things to Eat at the Hollywood Farmers' Market

There's nothing like noshing on samples at the farmers' market. But sadly apple slices on toothpicks, a sample of tangerine, and a sip of freshly squeezed pomegranate juice does not exactly make a full meal. Luckily, our favorite farmers' markets have more than enough choices of ready-made items to constitute a full meal. Or a few of them. Your Moveable Feast joke here __________.

So we begin a new photo gallery series featuring photographs of our picks for the top 10 things to eat while shopping at the Farmers' Market. First up, our favorite edibles (listed in no particular order) from the Sunday Hollywood Farmers' Market.

Top 10 Things to Eat at the Hollywood Farmers' Market

1. Fresh Coconut Milk from Dave's Gourmet Korean Food ($3.00). Fresh from the coconut, this raw milk can quickly boost low blood sugar or ease the effects of a Saturday night hangover.

2. The "Cafecito" from Cafecito Organico ($3.75). Made with a double ristretto shot of Clandestino espresso, steamed milk, and raw cane sugar cane juice from Hollywood Farmers' neighbor, Super Juice, this is just what you need to get your morning started.

3. Sri Windsor Cafe's Coconut Milk Cakes ($2.50). What's not to love about sweet and buttery, bite-sized coconut pancakes? A serving of half a dozen cakes are great on their own or with a cup of warm coffee. These rounded pancakes may look like Danish Ebelskiver, but they are uniquely Thai with their warm coconut milk filling.

4. A cinnamon roll from The BreadMan ($1.50). Uncurl the buttery layers of sweet dough of this softball-sized pastry to experience the Farmers' Market equivalent of Cinnabun. Ask for extra napkins, else suffer with sticky fingers.

5. Oysters from Carlsbad Aquafarm ($2.00 each). Take a gourmet time-out with a handful of farm-raised oysters. Enjoy the ocean friendly bivalves on their own, or dress the shucked to order oysters with splash of Tabasco or a squeeze of lemon.

6. Grill Masters'Rotisserie Chicken Combo ($10.00). Seek out the Grill Master's catering truck on the intersection of Cosmo and Selma to quiet the grumbling of a hungry stomach with a healthy serving of rotisserie chicken, roasted potatoes, warm pita bread, and your choice of a soft drink.

7. Pupusas from Delmy Pupuseria. For something with a little heat, join the hungry Sunday shoppers for a pupusa with all the fixings--a spicy chili salsa, pickled coleslaw, and cream. The Salvadoran classic is a stuffed corn flour flat bread filled with cheese ($2.00) or your choice of meat (beef, shrimp, or chicken for $3.00) or sauteed vegetables ($3.00). Our favorite is the tongue and cheese ($3.00).

8. Roasted corn on the cob from Señor Corn ($3.00). Order an ear that's fresh from the roaster and slather the sweet kernels with butter, chili, lime, and seasoned salt for mother nature's best to-go food.

10. Chocolate sea salt cookie with mint cocoa nib ice cream sandwich from Carmela Ice Cream ($5.00)A sturdy salted chocolate cookie gets cozy with mint ice cream that offers a textural boost from cocoa nibs. The small-batch artisan ice cream sandwich is a great choice for the skip-savory-and-go-straight-to-dessert type.
