  • I love hunting for treasures here. It gets pretty packed with “trendy” people who mostly shop for vintage clothes, which works great for me because it keeps the crowds concentrated at the clothing booths while I look for home decor. You’re able to find anything from antique pieces to modern handmade crafts. Most of the vendors are the same every week, but some change out and you’re able to find new things every time.
  • If you check the website, there's usually a coupon for $1 off entry. Early bird def gets the worm here. If you arrive early there's parking, but if you are like most of LA you aren't gonna get any parking, good luck with that! As my friend says, it's like an outdoor goodwill, so you don't get the musty smells. Are you spending an arm and leg on stuff you can get for a few dollars at Goodwill? Probably! But the goods are always unique and there are also almost always celebrities if that's your thing. There is always awesome music in the food area. And the food isn't bad either! The guy in the corner doing corn bowls is awesome with delicious kombucha on tap. Other notable eateries include the crepe place and there are always samples of fries.
