It's a seasonal farmers market with a pretty spectacular view. The Yamashiro Farmers Market, organized by Yamashiro Hollywood and City Farm, starts up again this season on April 4 from 5 to 9 p.m. at the Holywood hilltop Japanese restaurant and will run every Thursday through September.
Yamashiro executive chef Brock Kleweno is debuting a revamped menu of Middle Eastern-meets-Asian pitas: preserved lemon and honey chicken with pistachio-sesame sauce; merguez braised lamb with shiso tatziki; harissa shrimp with cucumber relish; and "shwarma"-marinated beef with citrus tahini.
Hillside Family Farms will be ferrying fresh produce from San Diego County, with fresh berries from New Era Farms. Heirloom LA, CoolHaus, Flatiron food truck and Bolani East West Gourmet will set up at the market, as well as Hepp's Salt, Longshot Espresso and Dolce Monachelli's cakes. Yamashiro's Pagoda Bar will be open for drinks.
Parking is free and first-come, first-serve at the Mosaic Church (7107 Hollywood Blvd.), with a shuttle to Yamashiro. Nearby street and lot parking also is available.
