Before Trader Joe's and even the Hub, before Ralph's and Hughes, Gelson's and Mayfair, Von's and Safeway, there was Silver Lake's Mixville Market. Does anyone know exactly where this was? I think it was on the site of Ralph's, but I'm not sure. In any case, the parking lot looks like a big improvement on Trader Joe's.
(From now through the end of the year, EatingLA is going to be a mite busy with holidays and finishing up various projects. Of course, we all gotta eat, so reviews will continue, but we're also introducing some historic food-related shots from the L.A. Public Library photo archive, just for fun.)
