Local farm stands? This is LA, there aren't any local farm stands anymore, are there? Yes there are. And, they are at some of the oldest farms left in Los Angeles County.
As I have written about before, one of these farm stands is Forneris Farms in Mission Hills, and is one of only two “traditional” farms left in the San Fernando Valley. John Forneris is a third generation farmer and has been farming in Mission Hills for the past 45 years.
Aside from strawberies John grows tomatoes, corn, melons, squash, green beans, hot and sweet peppers, onions, pumpkins, herbs, and flowers.
The farm market is open every day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and they accept cash only. They also offer school and group tours.
Come out and support this family farm and treat yourself to some of the freshest and sweetest berries you will find in LA!
