Hey fellow Angelenos! Thanks for visiting my website and choosing to partake in supporting our local farmers and restaurants!
Ordering produce and meal-kit boxes from independent businesses will keep our neighbors employed and our spending recirculating within our communities. Now more than ever, the Southern California farmers that supply many of the city’s high-profile restaurants need support. If low on fruit and vegetables, consider supporting LA restaurants and local farmers by buying produce from these restaurants, cafes, and bars. Many of your favorite food businesses have pivoted to new models, not to profit but in many cases, to keep their furloughed employees’ benefits intact.
The following lists are businesses in and around Los Angeles that offer food, groceries, and pick-up’s.
FARMS OFFERING PRODUCE, BOXES, or PICK-UP’S
Check your nearest Farmer’s Markets and contact your local farmers for grab and go boxes. These boxes usually include seasonal produce, eggs, and fruits. We currently use Gaytan Family Farm and do pick-up’s from the Torrance Farmer’s Market on Tuesdays. I advise reaching out to the farms directly to confirm method of payment and pre-orders. We generally search for them on Instagram and DM.
Sourcing produce from two different farms, Culver City Platform’s Roberta’s Pizza is selling $50 Thao Family Farm boxes of produce including Thai shallots, bok choy, and yams for Saturday pickup 2 to 5 p.m. and County Line boxes on Friday afternoons ordered via their website. For Saturday boxes, email email@example.com to reserve for pick-up or order through www.platformdrivethrough.com.
To keep up with the changing needs of its customers, chefs and owners Walter and Margarita Manzke have started selling $35 produce boxes from Thao Farms, featuring greens like bok choy and kale, as well as fennel, Swiss chard, and Japanese yams. Call the restaurant to pre-order or receive a delivery through Grubhub or Postmates.
Animal / Jon & Vinny’s
Sourcing produce from Coleman Family Farm and other vendors, the duo behind Jon & Vinny’s, Animal, Son of a Gun, and others have started selling $45 produce boxes, available for order online through the link above, as well as fruit boxes and other pantry goods. Pick-up is available at Animal on Fairfax.
Los Feliz neighborhood spot All Time is selling $25 market fruit boxes and $62 mixed produce boxes daily, sourcing from places like Arnett, Kong Thao, JF, and Tamai Farms. Recent boxes include carrots, celery, rainbow chard, and curly kale. Pick-up and delivery available via ChowNow.
