Hi hounds, I’m driving down to LA this weekend for my semi-annual visit to see my son. I usually stop by the Original Farmer’s Market and get toffee from Little John’s to bring back to my office, but I think I’d like something different this time. I thought I had posted something about this on the Chowhound LA board once before but couldn’t find the thread.
So, it needs to be “shareable” and not very perishable. The toffee has always been a hit but again, I’d consider something new and different. I’m staying in Valencia as usual and expect to be over the hill a few times during the week.
Any thoughts or recommendations? It could be something from a restaurant like Brent’s (we’ll go there for a Hanukkah dinner one night) or bakery…anything that different that I can’t get int the Bay Area would be great.
Hi LAgirl, I’ve brought back Magee’s before and that’s always a stop for me to stock up my own pantry. Sqirl looks good too but I brought Sarabeth jam (jelly?) from NY last year. I’m really trying for something different this year and it has to be shareable…meaning, put out the box for everyone in the office.
Hi Savour, this looks like a really good idea–any idea if they sell it at the Studio City location? I can’t tell from the website what they carry retail. Studio City would be much easier for me to get to, as I’m typically in Sherman Oaks at least once during the week.
Also, I LOVE the cafe menus–will add both locations to my collated list of LA restaurants.
