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.
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.
