Cookbook Market, founded six years ago by two long-time Echo Park residents (who also happen to be married), is the serious home-cook’s culinary playground. The tiny, tightly edited space stocks plenty of daily provisions (farm-fresh dairy, organic meat and vegetables, homemade pasta, pickles, and salsas), alongside harder-to-find artisanal items (Anson Mills grains, obscure oils and vinegars, special spice blends). Aside from fresh produce and pantry items, you’ll also find a host of flavorful prepared salads, sandwiches, and tempting baked treats by the counter. Order a cup of their espresso-based coffee and sip it surrounded by buckets of wildflowers on the benches outside. For those living farther east, a second Cookbook Market location has just opened in Highland Park.
