Outside my office door: Wilshire Center Farmers' Market

My office just moved to Koreatown, and I'm discovering new culinary delights around every corner. On Fridays, from 11:30 to 3:30, on Mariposa between Wilshire and 6th, the Wilshire Center Farmers' Market springs up. When I stroll into work around 9 am, the vendors are beginning to unpack, and intrepid Korean grandmas immediately pounce on the best produce before the market even opens. By noon, it seems that the entire neighborhood has taken lunch at the same time to enjoy the bounty.

Hi Erin!

WHat are the white things in front of the limes in the last picture? They look pretty and I've never seen them over here.

They are a variety of summer squash--usually called pattypan. However, I rarely see them this large at the market.
