The Night Market

From April through May, Thursday nights in Hollywood have an awesome and inexpensive option. The Yamashiro Farmers Market takes place from 5 til about 9pm each Thursday- bring friends and enjoy the relaxing night with some delicious treats and a view that can't be beat.
A nice variety of food trucks are represented up there along with stalls full of fresh produce and tasty cakes. There are tables and chairs along with some little nooks you can sneak off into to enjoy the sunset while sipping on some wine.
This market has been going on for a few years now and always turns out a good crowd. I finally got the chance to get up there a couple of weeks ago and arrived right at 5. The parking just down LaBrea at the Mosaic lot north of Hollywood Blvd was super easy (and free) and the buses (also free) come every few minutes to take you on the 5 minute commute up the hill.
Nibble on samples from some local food suppliers or just walk around and enjoy the view, you really can't go wrong. It almost feels like you are taking a break on a cloud and watching the city get on with it's night from a quiet and relaxing vantage point. Bonus if you live in the valley like me- there is a wonderful breeze which ALWAYS makes for a good night!
