I know recently there has been a lot of hype over all of the new businesses in GCM such as Egg Slut and DTLA Cheese. While it's nice to know of a place to get a decent breakfast sandwich, I'm most interested in the older vendors, the ones that have been there for generations. I'm afraid these are the stalls that are getting pushed out by the newer, hipper businesses. These are the vendors that sell spicy mole by the pound, dried chilies, used gold, ripe fruit and Mexican street food. The signs are hand painted, the products are colorful and imperfect, and it's a mistake to pass by these stalls on your way to a $9 fresh-pressed juice.
