SHOP! Visit your favorite vendors (nearly 250 every Sunday). Check out our featured vendors:
RT Creations: Succulent Living Arrangements – Richard Troche makes beautiful handcrafted concrete hanging planters, often adorning them with art and polished stones such as agate, that are great for planting succulents, cacti, and herbs. Look for him in Space B59. P.S. Visit his Etsy site, too!
Fizz Bath – Judy Weltsch specializes in creating natural and organic bath and body products. She offers luscious bath bombs, skin-softening sugar scrubs, amazing lip scrubs (just buff on and lick off!), and relaxing bathing salts. Look for her in Space B123 this Sunday.
EAT! Head over to the Food Court for a cup of gourmet coffee and order a crepe from GC Crepe Makers. Enjoy a slice or two from Joe’s Pizza Truck (parked near the Fairfax gate) where you can get true New York-style pizza! Chill with a shaved ice from A Rockin Ice at the Melrose gate.
LISTEN! Live this week on the Food Court Stage:
10:00 AM to 1:00 PM – Katie Ferrara: This folk/pop singer/songwriter from Los Angeles has been described as having “a voice that carries “the fragile beauty of a blossoming rose and stirs the soul the way a gentle touch tingles flesh” and who “writes music that is soulful folk” with influences ranging from Dido to Adele, and Joni Mitchell to Norah Jones.
1:15 PM to 4:15 PM – MTP Jazz Band: The MTP Jazz Band is actually two separate groups who perform on alternate Sundays. This week will feature the Carl Tassi Trio. The Carl Tassi Trio has performed at the market since 1998. The group currently consists of singing jazz drummer Carl Tassi, Cengiz Yaltkaya on keyboards, and Morrow Fleet on bass. With his Panama hat and West Coast cool, Carl has been described as “a little bit of Moses Allison with Chet Baker and Annie Ross” thrown in the mix. The Paul DiBlasi Trio performs straight-ahead jazz from the 1950s and 1960s (piano, bass, drums), often featuring guest musicians. Paul has performed at the Fairfax flea market since 2003. Here’s a video of one of the band’s performances: http://youtu.be/mxlfCpRajgs
