Venice Neighborhood Meet

It was a beautiful day in my neighborhood on Saturday so I strolled down to Abbot Kinney to check out The Venice Meet - an open air marketplace featuring a curated  assembly of "local craftspeople, independent musicians, and specialty food artisans".  The eclectic selection of handmade wares and edible offerings along with the welcoming vibe, contributed to what I found to be a very enjoyable community event and a great way to spend a lovely spring day. I'm glad that the founders of Venice Meet have planned for it to be a monthly occurrence!

Here are some highlights to wet your appetite for next month's market:

The Skullastic truck peddles school supplies that "don't suck" and donates a percentage of proceeds back to local schools. Nice. (look for more on this creative entreprenuerial endeavor  in a forthcoming post)
refreshingly cool shaved ice flavors offered by ice ice shavie
yum. I'll have one. 
wall art for sale
Le Fashion Truck was on the scene
Crispy treats from The Rice Creamery 
Local jazz/roots collective The Dustbowl Collective kept the mood festive. 

 The next Venice Meet is scheduled for Saturday, May 12th. For more info, click here.  hope to see you there!
