Guess Who Hung Out at the Farmers' Market in Los Angeles?

"A favorite gathering place for the emigres was the farmers' market on Fairfax Avenue and Third Street, which reminded them of European markets. There the Aldous Huxleys and the Stravinskys became inseparable friends in the mid-1940s. Stravinsky looked upon Huxley as a guiding spirit; Huxley's profound understanding of and interest in music was rewarded by this lively contact."
[from page 228 of Dorothy Lamb Crawford's A Windfall of Musicians]
