99 ranch market in hollywood (sunset/western) is closing

the checkers said they are not making enough money. dammit, i shop there all the time! they had really good deals on produce sometimes and was my go-to spot for middle eastern and latin ingredients. there are other markets nearby but not nearly as large. i used to get huge bunches of herbs there - 99 cents! beef cheeks - $2.99 a pound. lengua, tripe, nopales, quince, verdolaga before all the farmer's market hipsters jumped on it...

any recs for other places like this in the hollywood area??

  1. Isn't it turning into a Target?
    Jon's market on Vermont has some pretty good deals.

      Follow chowpatty's advice all the way.
      Target will take over the entire center, and Jon's is the alternative.

        That really sucks. I went by there today, closed. I live near Jons but liked this place better. Bummer.

      2. wow. I am surprised---how long has there been a 99 ranch market in Hollywood? I am visualizing sunset and western in my head and just don't see it. are you sure you don't mean some other market?

        regardless as a replacement, try the jons at fountain and la brea. or the california market on Beverly or on Western.

          To clarify, it's the Farm Fresh that just closed. It did beat going to some 99 Ranch Market miles away for produce.

        2. Yeah, I heard they're opening a Target on that lot. I do a lot of business around that corner. I shop at Home Depot and OSH there. I even get my monthly hair cuts just down the street on Sunset.
