Fresh milk at an LA area farmers market??
I'm looking to purchase fresh milk from a dairy farmer at a farmers market in the LA area (west LA/Santa Monica preferred). I haven't seen any dairy farmers at the markets, am I missing them?
I remember growing up in the midwest and having dairy farmers selling their fresh milk in glass bottles at the markets.
Thanks in advance!
The raw milk at the Hollywood market is sold by Organic Pastures (www.organicpastures.com). They distribute their milk to Whole Foods and maybe other stores in L.A. Call the company directly and find out where they distribute and, most importantly, when they distribute. You'll want to buy the milk right after the new delivery, to make sure it is at its freshest. It's a bit more expensive than buying it at the booth at the market, but time/travel/gasoline factor in.
Might want to look for Broguiere's in places like Gelsons, Whole Foods, Bristol Farms.....they're a local dairy in Montebello that processes milk (they don't have cows) and package milk in glass bottles. Their chocolate milk and egg nog (when in season) are to die for.
