The Market at Santa Monica Place presents the fourth installment of Good Food Fridays today, Aug. 30 with a special Back To School theme.
This month’s event will start early at 5 pm (until 9 pm) and offer samples, tastings, and activities for the whole family, as well as an opportunity to give back to local Santa Monica/Malibu schools.
This free, interactive community event will take place the last Friday of every month through October, and allows guests to mix and mingle with friends and meet the local purveyors from The Market and beyond.
Special guests include the Almond Milk LA, Gindo’s Spice of Life, Green Brooms Music Academy KRAVE Jerky, KIND Bars, ZYL Collections, Go Green Nopal Foods, and Naam Yoga.
The festivities will include pop-up boutiques from talented local designers including Ivory Mason Eyewear, A Lost Art, A Wish, Michaela Jewelry by Design, Home Baked Beanies and Jeanie Madsen Gallery and discounts from Buy Local and Santa Monica Place Shopper Rewards.
Live musical performances will be provided by the students of the Green Brooms Music Academy in Santa Monica and Santa Monica Merchant curated organic food delivery.
Guests will also enjoy 10 percent off all purchases from the purveyors in The Market during the event and the first 200 people through the door will receive a free Market tote bag filled with products such as Honest Tea and Pretzel Chips.
The Market is located on the third floor Dining Deck of Santa Monica Place.
Santa Monica Bike Center will offer free bike valet for two hours and $1 for each additional hour thereafter (corner of 2nd and Colorado).
