Our Hero The Gilmore Family are the pioneer developers of The Original Farmers Market at 3rd and Fairfax. Arthur Fremont Gilmore migrated to California from Illinois in 1870 and began a partnership with Julius Carter, running a dairy farm in the Compton area. By 1880, they purchased 256-acres of Rancho La Brea and started their second farm. Ten years in, they split leaving A.F. Gilmore with the Rancho La Brea acreage. A.F. Gilmore operated a dairy farm until oil was discovered beneath it in the early 1900s.. The oil discovery led to the development of the Gilmore Oil Company, which at the time was the largest retailer of oil products in the West. The slogan “Roar with Gilmore� was known up and down the Coast with a network of 3500 stations. Gilmore acquired other interests and began development of its real estate holdings. The original 256-acres were subdivided and either sold or developed by the Company; creating a sports stadium, baseball field and drive-in theater. In July 1934, Farmers Market began operation at 3rd and Fairfax. In the late 1980s, the Company redeveloped the property adjacent to the Farmers Market. It ground leased a portion for the development of the Grove and the balance was developed as office, storage facilities and retail. The Company continues to acquire business opportunities and real estate for redevelopment.
