Honoring Felipe Esparza at Boyle Heights Farmers’ Market Friday

Friends: this Friday we're hosting a very special “Gran Festival” at the Boyle Heights Farmers Market at Mariachi Plaza. We are honoring comedian Felipe Esparza, who recently won this season’s “Last Comic Standing” competition on NBC.

Felipe is one of our own, raised in Boyle Heights. We are honored he is going to join us.

The Boyle Heights Farmers’ Market Festival, which runs from 3 p.m.- 9 p.m., will also feature radio personality Humberto Luna, live performances by Mariachi Monumental De America con Alicia Juarez; Amidst, Casa de Calacas and Rocio Ponce Flamenco. There will also be a horse exhibition by Rancho Armendariz.

Please join us each and every Friday as we promote a healthier community, with vendors offering a myriad of fresh fruits and vegetables. The Boyle Heights Farmers’ Market takes place Fridays, 3 p.m.-8 p.m., at Mariachi Plaza Station on First and Boyle.

We are fortunate to have three Farmers' Markets in Council District 14 and I encourage you to visit the ones in Eagle Rock and El Sereno, as well.

We will also be honoring Felipe Esparza in City Council Friday morning at 10 a.m. in Council Chambers at City Hall (3rd floor). Call my Boyle Heights office for more information (323) 526-3059.
