Artisanal LA Brings Its Market, Demos, Panels and Tastings Westward

Santa Monica Place

If I weren’t going to Coachella (completely last minute!) this weekend, I would be at Artisanal LA in a heartbeat. It’s always one of the most unique yet conscientious shopping experiences of the year whether you’re shopping for your kitchen, garden, home or loved ones. It’s a conglomerate of some of the best ideas for living in the city and what’s more, there are demos, panels and tastings to fill your day.

A portion of the proceeds from your $10 advance admission (or $15 at-the-door) will go towards St. Vincent’s Meals on Wheels, which helps feed seniors in their homes. Complimentary beverages will be available during the event, too.

Some of my favorites on the schedule include a Market Fresh Cocktail demo by Matt Biancaniello of The Roosevelt’s Library Bar, an Intelligentsia Coffee demo and tasting and a Local Craft Beer Panel by Eagle Rock Brewery and Nibble Bit Tabby.

So I while I won’t see you there, that doesn’t mean you should miss out. Buy your advance tickets ASAP.
