An eco-foodie must with an impressively long list of vendors including well known local favorites to small newbies operating out of home kitchens. NPR’s All Things Considered, 2010

Artisanal LA was launched in 2010 to showcase the best local, artisan food vendors in Southern California. The seasonal shows feature a wide array of edible treats from local butchers to chocolate makers, and programming like hands-on workshops, chef-led demos, expert panels, and speakers educating guests on everything from urban farming to craft beer making, as well as the opportunity to learn about non-profit organizations changing the local food scene in Los Angeles.

The seasonal shows and holiday pop-up shops give attendees the rare opportunity to shop from more than 100 hand-selected food and beverage artisans all in one place, as well as meet up-and-coming food and drink vendors who share a passion for healthy, local, and sustainable ingredients and production. Many artisans have launched their businesses through Artisanal LA prior to even being available at farmers markets. The exciting events make it easy to buy local, support LA’s economy, discover new favorites, meet producers, and join in community while having a ball with the growing number of Angelenos who want to know where their food comes from. 100% of Artisanal LA’s vendors’ products are made right here in Southern California with local and sustainable goods.
