Update: The official reopening date for the Century City Farmers’ Market is Thursday, March 31.

After Century City was left farmers’ market-less for January and half of February, the Century City Farmers’ Market will re-open at its new location this spring, with the exact date to be announced shortly, during the usual business hours, each Thursday between 10 am and 2 pm.

The new location will be just a stone’s throw from the longtime spot, surrounding Plaza grounds at the Hines property at 10100 Santa Monica Boulevardaccording to John Edwards, president of Raw Inspiration, the operators of the farmers market.

“While the Farmers’ Market will no longer be in the exact location that our vendors and patrons are used to,” said Jennifer McColm, the head of the Farmers’ Market organization, “10100 Santa Monica has kindly and generously offered a space for the Market, immediately adjacent to its former location.”

“With 10100 Santa Monica’s involvement, the Farmers’ Market will continue its decades-long tradition of serving residents and office tenants alike with local, fresh produce and artisan food offerings,” McColm said. She added, “… without 10100 Santa Monica stepping in, I believe it would have been the end of a favorite Century City institution. So, I give my heartfelt thanks to 10100 Santa Monica and to Michelle Olenick of Hines, whose determination and support of the Farmers’ Market made this possible.”

L.A. City Councilmember Paul Koretz, whose 5th District includes Century City, has been a vocal supporter of the Century City Farmers’ Market.

“I am truly delighted that the Century City Farmers’ Market is reopening and that its future is secure,” Koretz said in a statement. ” The Farmers’ Market is an invaluable community centerpiece because it’s a fun gathering place that makes available wonderfully fresh and healthy food items.  I thank Raw Inspiration and Hines Properties for making this possible, and congratulate all of Century City on this great news.”
