In 1934 the open dirt lot known as Gilmore Island (located on the corner of 3rd and Fairfax in Los Angeles) was used by local farmers who would display their produce (fruits and vegetables) on the back of their trucks turning the lot into a farmers market for the people of Los Angeles. This market was a huge hit and quickly developed into an international landmark (what is now known as the Farmers Market at Gilmore Island). Today the Farmers Market is home to many groceries, restaurants, shops and services. ELC students enjoy delicious treats while visiting a variety of very unique shops.
