  • Most clues will be active for the week, and there will also be “flash clues” which are only active for the day.
  • Each business you visit is worth 1 point.  For your point to count, you must take a photo at the business using our virtual photo booth.  You can find the photo booth QR code in participating businesses.
  • You must post your photo on Instagram, tag @prosperity.market and use the hashtag #PMbizhunt2021 OR you can email your photos to admin@prosperitymarketla.com

  • Hard shell, soft shell, order all you can eat, don’t be timid! Their cheesecake can’t be beat and the Sky is the limit! You found them on Pico, that’s the flagship store. But if you’re on the westside, you can come here for more.
  • The flowers bloom and the coffee drips. You will wake right up with a morning sip. Raise your fist and hold your flowers because coffee is their superpower.
  • Don’t be Insecure, you can climb to the top. You’ll be so glad you did once you make it to this shop. If you missed this clue the first time, don’t you fret. There’s several locations, so there’s still time yet!
  • If you missed them on Melrose, you can find them downtown. These Guyz have the best vegan burger around. If you want to eat good then follow these Guyz. We already told you it’s the best, it’s not a surprise.
  • Come here first for the Grind of the day. And start your morning in the most fabulous way. If you’re in Beverlywood, this is the place to go. One look at their menu and you can’t say no.
  • Roses are red, rooftop brunches are fun. If you want to brunch while downtown, then this is the one.
