I'm not sure that there's a place in town that I love more than the Brentwood Country Mart. Even though we don't live extremely close, I like to go there with my family once a week, if we can. Brixton loves it there. It has great shops and food, mixed with the most charming country style. Each spot in the mart could use its own feature, so it was very hard for me to condense this into one post! Here's just some of what you can expect to enjoy there.
Walking into the food court surrounded by super cute shops.
We usually arrive starving, so our first stop is Farmshop, one of our most beloved restaurants and specialty markets in the city.
We love their gorgeous bar and restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The market section has endless goodies to offer. Have I mentioned how much I love it here?!
They have a fantastic wine selection for your upcoming dinner party and/or host gifts.
We love to get a bunch of different items from their deli case and have a "picnic" out in one of their two food court areas, outfitted with cute tables and benches (and high chairs!).
Someone really likes to ride the old fashioned quarter rides.
Sis and I are both huge fans of Poppy, this lovely children's boutique.
An absolute must for Brixton is checking out everything in the adorable Toy Crazy store.
I love to stock up on beautiful cards and gifts at Sugar Paper. They really have some of the best stuff around.
Their newly remodeled store looks amazing.
Strolling through the mart's corridors and peeking in all the shops is a favorite activity of mine.
I think we could all agree that this is the cutest Post Office in LA.
Inside the impeccable Jenni Kayne boutique. Does this woman ever do anything less than perfect? I think not.
Another must for us is stopping into the Diesel Bookstore for a new purchase from this great independent bookstore.
Cutest red barn exterior and Intermix boutique on the south end of the mart.
I love small batches of happiness, so every trip to the mart must end at Sweet Rose Creamery. It's the law.
Sweet Rose has some of the freshest ice cream around. They are also the only place I know of that makes their own chocolate sprinkles (sans artificial colors and flavors!).
I'll take one of everything. Thanks.
I changed up my usual Fresh Mint Chip & Salted Caramel cone for a seasonal favorite -- Lemon Chiffon.
I never get sick of this place. It's always the best day when we come here. In the words of Ice Cube -- "Today was a good day."
