Meet Me At 3rd & Fairfax

March 7, 2018

 

Growing up, we had a dear friend named Meir Jacobs, known by many as "Mickey", who worked at The Original Farmers Market in LA.  He had owned a shop there called J&T Bread Bin.  He was the kindest, most talented baker and he was always smiling.  Our favourite things to get were his sweet and cinnamony Hungarian Bread and rich Chocolate Cigars.  He had always been so generous in giving me and my sister an extra bag of delicious cookies.  To this day, he continues to inspire me in his kindness and believing to do things the old fashioned way.

Although we have not seen him since his store has closed, we continue to visit the Farmers Market and The Grove.

 

 

Last week, our school had a field trip to The Original Farmers Market and our docent (Maritza) taught us the Farmers Market’s history. 

 

 

Did you know that way before the Farmers Market was built, it was a dairy farm?  

 

 

This dairy farm and its surrounding land was owned by a man named Arthur Fremont Gilmore and in the process of digging a well to get water for the cows, he accidentally struck oil.  Because of this, he decided to establish an oil company named “Gilmore Oil Company”.  Then the Gilmore Oil Company became “the largest distributor of oil products west of the Mississippi”.
