Delicious and plentiful samples; well done demos and super-friendly exhibitors. I would certainly go again. You can park for free at the LA Trade Tech lot on Olive just south of Washington.

Great place for pre-holiday orders on baked goods! Venue (LA Mart) was good with easy parking. So many unique hand made items for purchase that you wouldn't know exists unless you attend this event as most of the vendors don't have their items in...continued

Some wonderful vendors unfortunately there was not a wide enough variety of vendors. Mostly food.The 11th floor dining experience was extremely limited. Disappointed that Doomies wasn't there. Would probably give it another try in a couple of...continued

Had a lot of fun. Lots of good foods. (And a few not-so-good.) Salted-caramel-bourbon ice-cream. Overall, just a fun afternoon.

I did not like it. Not everyone was handing out samples, who ever was, the samples were so tiny you could barely taste anything. The products for sale were overpriced, and nothing really special that you can not get at any farmer's market, thus...continued

I liked it because i got to taste several new products. Some I like and some didn't really care so much. Yes these are all homemade and quite unique but I find them a little pricey. However, I was able to buy some products that i liked. The venue...continued

Enjoyed the variety of drinks, food samples and desserts. Always look forward to this event. You find new products that are made locally.

smaller event than the October one, but still a great event to try new products and find out more about local businesses. Wish there were more food participants and less soaps and candles, those can be found anywhere. i will definitely go back...continued

It was great to try things I would not normally seek out. Shame there were no micro breweries (as advertised).

What a wonderful showing of incredibly talented Los Angeles Artisanal Food Makers. The pasta by Steve Samson from Sotto was definitely a highlight, we had the best dinner when we got home. :)

Lots of delicious food, samples everywhere, fun & enthusiastic vendors. Two baby goats to pet. I would have liked to have a few more handicrafts in the mix...didn't realize it was (almost) exclusively food. Loved the venue -- went upstairs &...continued

There were far too many food vendors, and many of the same kind of thing. It was a bit overwhelming and difficult to decide what to buy. There are many other events like this that don't charge for admittance. It's like you are paying for the...continued
