Los Angeles has more stores than anyone could physically tackle, but somehow we always keep returning to the usual suspects. To break out of the rut, we've asked some local shopping and fashion gurus to provide their hidden retail gems—those unique stores around LA that we might not all know about. Cue the Beatles: We're about to get a little help from our friends.

Sheiva Shideh just wrapped her last week working at Soho House West Hollywood in private events. Now, she's the assistant publicist to the vice president at MML PR in Santa Monica where she'll be working with clients like Hurley, Clarins and Garnier. Here, she fills us in on her favorite Sunday pastime in Brentwood.
"Without a doubt, my favorite farmers market in the city is the Brentwood Village Farmers Market. You'll find the usual suspects here like food, coffee, treats, jewelry and clothes. What you WON'T find is the hefty price tag that usually comes with organic and fresh local produce. My friends and I now have our Sunday morning ritual. We'll meet on Montana Avenue, grab a coffee from one of the vendors, and window shop past all of the fruit and veggie stands. Since the vendors are so friendly and generous, we'll usually leave stuffed from all of the amazing samples and with our groceries stocked for the week. My tips: come equipped with cash, an eco-friendly tote and your Lululemon gear for a fun day at the farmers market in Brentwood Village!"
