Afterwards, we had lunch at a wonderful & very authentic restaurant, Terroni with my son, who lives in LA. Terroni is on Beverly in the Fairfax district & specializes in southern Italian cuisine, it is very delicious, warm & welcoming. We had a traditional 2 hour lunch, Italian style, followed by fried apple fritters with creme fraiche & Italian expresso, a truly delightful experience and one of the very best Italian meals I have experienced outside of Italy.
Sharing with you a few faves from our morning at the Grove market & our fabulous lunch at Terroni...
|Early arrival, grey skies welcomed us with cool winds, the vendors still setting up their tents...|
|Always a stop at the vendor who deals in antique leather & vellum books...|
|The sky is now bright & a brilliant blue as we walk over to the fresh vegetables..love the striped canopies and the friendly merchants|
|A fave vendor, Valerie Brooks has fabulous European Country finds...|
|Hard to resist the French daybed, above, it was wonderful....below, Casa Vintage from Sandra Portillo always has a beautiful array of vintage objects|
|After arriving at the market at 6:00 am, Terroni sounds perfect for lunch, the restaurant is fabulous with several stunning chandeliers, the largest hangs over the bar at the entrance...|
