THE BEST THINGS TO DO IN LOS ANGELES – PART 3: FOOD

This season, KENZO heads out to California, Carol and Humberto’s home state. We asked Joy Yoon - author of the book 'The best things to do in Los Angeles – 1001 ideas' (Universe / Rizzoli International) - to select some surprising and unexpected addresses in Los Angeles. Our third category is food.

Let's follow up with a second destination: Coleman Family Farms!

When you come across this stall at the Santa Monica Farmers’ Market it’s as if you’ve stumbled upon a cornucopia of biodynamic greenery. With unique produce like broccoli spigarello, arugula selvatica, New Zealand spinach, amaranth, chocolate mint, cherimoya, Portuguese kale, Syrian oregano, and red dandelion (that’s just the tip of the iceberg), it’s no surprise that Coleman Family Farms, now overseen by Romeo Coleman, is the go-to for top chefs and foodies alike. And if you’re ever stuck on what to make for dinner, patriarch and not-so-retired Bill Coleman is great at providing simple and delicious recipe recommendations. In fact, all the Colemans are! Those in need of a different type of greenery can find Bill’s wife Delia next to the lettuces, creating beautiful floral arrangements to take home.

 

Coleman Family Farms is at the Santa Monica market on Wednesdays : Arizona Avenue and 2nd Street 8:30am - 1:30pm
