A Bigger, Better Pop-Up Market Opens in Skid Row

DTLA – Downtown Los Angeles has a number of popular farmers markets, but many people would be surprised to know that Skid Row has its own pop-up program for organic produce, run by the activist nonprofit Los Angeles Community Action Network.

This week, the program is re-launching as a bigger, more diverse weekly market. Thursday, Jan. 18 will see the “grand opening” of a produce stand and market at 838 E. Sixth St. (Sixth and Gladys), in front of LACAN’s offices. Running from 10 a.m.-1 p.m., the market will offer more vendors than ever before, including the All Fired Up Coalition (serving vegan burritos) and Skid Row Coffee, which offers brews on a pay-what-you-can scale. There will be organic produce, some of it grown on LACAN’s rooftop, as well as cooking and juicing demos, an art showcase, acupuncture services, a guided meditation and other free wellness activities. Skid Row’s own DJ Sir Oliver will be spinning reggae to set the mood.
