Scene in the original Farmers Market, West 3rd St. at Fairfax — Hollywood’s unique outdoor food market, where motion picture stars and Hollywood housewives shop. The marketplace was opened in 1934 by Roger Dahlhjelm, comprises 80 farm stalls and food specialty shops. The word’s largest, most colorful permanent food fair patronized daily by more than 15,000 Southern Californians.

The market still exists at the same location, and has grown to over 100 stalls. It is situated next to the Grove outdoor shopping mall.
