Tucked on a corner in Eagle Rock, across a side street from a pink diner with its own towering billboard, the brown bungalow doesn't look like much. Its roof is beginning to tatter, there's nearly no parking, and the few tables outside are made from old doors painted and put on their sides in one last stop before the scrap yard. (Actually a nice, colorful touch.) Larkin's, which bills itself as “a contemporary soul food joint,” is like visiting Grandma's house, with its scuffed wood floors and cozy rooms and big windows, and its smells of cornbread and frying chicken.

A painting transforming the limestone karst towers that jut out of Vietnam's Halong Bay into a red and yellow fever dream hangs on the wall of an Eagle Rock restaurant named for the bay. A fountain in the center of the dining room tries to evoke the sound of water slapping on the massive spires, but mainly serves to lure toddlers who really, really want to splash their hands through the falling streams. Bathing toddler notwithstanding, Halong Bay is a quiet eatery with clean lines and a beckoning menu of French and Vietnamese cuisines.

I had the privilege and honor of serving the farmers as the manager of the Glendale Certified Farmers Market for the past 13 years. Twenty-one years ago, the city of Glendale hired Gretchen Stirling to start one of the very first farmers markets in the Southland, right in plain view on Brand Boulevard. One of the unique aspects of the Glendale Farmers Market was that the city's intent was not to make money, per se, but rather to bring people into the downtown so they'd shop at the restaurants and other stores as well.
