Purple Artichokes and Squash FlowersOne of the best things about ExperienceLA.com is the extensive Los Angeles Farmers Markets listings!

Hi,
Thanks for all the info on the farmer's market. I've been going to one in Santa Monica but am getting a little bored with it, so this will help me find a new one. Variety is the spice of life, afterall.
Also thought you might like to know about my blog, the Bargain Hunter. It's all about local coupon codes and deals on clothes, food, and everyday items. Since shopping is a big part of what Angelenos doe, I thought it might be good for your LA Experience blogroll.
Thanks for considering it!
