Nestled among the restaurants, coffee shops and stores of walkable Larchmont Village, this farmers market has a relaxed vibe and a wide variety of food vendors.
Shoppers can get fresh ingredients ranging from berries to eggs to clementines, cauliflower and mushrooms. The market's 50-60 booths also include vendors offering ready-to-eat foods such as tamales, pizza and pasta. Some are ready to eat on-site; other pre-made foods (like soup) are suited to take home and heat up for dinner.
Operated by Raw Inspiration, the Larchmont Village market has been running for more than a decade.
