We've said it once, and we'll definitely say it again: L.A.'s having a moment. Artisans are coming out of the woodwork and joining together in communities. Food is finally getting back to it's natural — and, most delicious — state. And, there's more incredible music than we can keep track of. But, with the city so spread out across hills and valleys, it's hard to get a feel for what's going on as a whole. Which is exactly why we're crazy for Mercado Sagrado, a new biannual lifestyle fair, featuring music, artisans, great vintage finds, and delicious food.
Housed in a beautiful home deep in Topanga canyon, the recent two-day event — hosted by Carly Jo Morgan, Heather Culp, Suja Juice, and One Fine Stay — featured a select group of L.A.'s most up-and-coming artisans, designers, vintage sellers, and more. The result? Flocks of stylish, local creatives, purchasing amazing finds (most of which were locally made), watching Devendra Banhart play live, and, yes, coming back the next day for more. Click through now to discover a fresh crop of new talent, and check out a few of our favorite pieces from the fair. And, make sure to mark your calendar for the next installment!
