Any Rec's for Favorite Farmer's Market Eats?

Looking for some suggestions for the best ready-to-eat foods found in LA's various Farmer's Markets (i.e. Big Mistah's, Pupusas at Torrance FM, Carlsbad Oysters, etc.)

    At LA's original Farmers Market on 3rd and Fairfax Littlejohn's English Toffee is the best in LA.

      Do you want only cooked food stalls or also things like ice cream, sweets, packaged food, etc?

          At Hollywood Farmers Market there is Carmella Ice Cream with great ice cream and ice cream sandwiches, Flan King, Valerie Confections with cookies and turnovers, Vera's chips and salsa. One of the stands has live sea urchins which they will crack open for you to eat right there. I also like the pupusas at Delmy's and the chiliquiles at Juanita's. The Thai place has really good pad thai and probably the best Ka Nom Krok (coconut balls) I've had in LA.

        I love the salchi y papas at the Bowers Sausage stand at the Mar Vista market. I get the chorizo...

          Always been satisfied by the Korean stall at the Hollywood Farmer's Market.
