PRODUCE AT THE FARMERS MARKET

Los Angeles, California

Luscious domestic and tropical fruits in a riot of color are only one of the many fascinating sights in the famous Farmers Market. Many delicious edibles are flown in daily from the Islands of the Pacific.

–As noted in the description, some of the produce sold in the Farmers Market was imported from across the Pacific, probably primarily from Hawaii, which was not a state at the time.
