LA Film School Wants Hollywood Farmers' Market Out of the Way

New, 35 comments

Code red for tamales and tomatoes: the nearly 20 year old Hollywood Farmers' Market might not have a home come next weekend. According to ABC7, the LA Film School is opposing the renewal of a permit for Selma and Ivar because the market blocks one of the school's parking ramps for several hours every Sunday. Starting next week, the market is off of Ivar. A meeting between the city and the HFM is scheduled for today. According to KTLA, the market hosts about 150 vendors and almost 10,000 customers every Sunday, but problems in Hollywood might not stay in Hollywood. Because the HFM is so lucrative, vendors can afford to sell at "7 other smaller farmers' markets in low income areas like Watts, Crenshaw, South Central, Echo Park, East Hollywood and Atwater Village."
