  • Written in the guide as a must visit place in downtown Los Angeles because what is written as a market of 90 producer to the final s 20A broken c there is the Max Surtout bars and food truck, not a display of fruit and vegetables

  • I seriously can't say enough great things about Grand Central Market! It's an eclectic mix of both people and food. The food offerings have such charming character, flavor levels and never short on variety. I love each vendor in a different way! Even the small grocery markets offer a nice spread of veggies, fruit and specialty items at decent price. Each visit has a cool way of transporting you out of LA...
  • If you want to have a casual lunch or dinner in downtown, this is a great place to goto. Food is decent and price is OK. There is even a couple of restaurants serving wine (pubs?) For the wine lovers. Great place to hang out with office friends for lunch. Handful of vegetarian options. The fact that its open late and weekends, definitely helps improve the neighborhood. In the 10 years I have seen it, it has definitely cleaned itself up from swampy vegetable market to a clean eateries area. May be they should start acquiring more space around them and make it even more open.
  • One if my favorite places in Los Angeles. Open air market with a long history. Lots of great choices to eat or buy food to take home. Some nights they have odd events going on like a bean bag toss. Several bars as well. Just a great place to hang out in downtown LA. Be aware that some of the food stalls close up early (late afternoon).
  • I love this place. Only free public restroom downtown so it seems other than LA Live and the library. And good beer. So many flavors (over 100) good foods and market sales.
  • So many cool options for food! Easy to get around to explore the city after grabbing a bite and some coffee or beer after you're all done too! Downside - the parking garage is unbelievable with all the SUVs parking in compact spaces 😫(Thanks for leaving room for people to park next to you and utilize the garage....)

Where to stay in Los Angeles

Los Angeles may be synonymous with luxury, but its accommodations include not only some of the most opulent and expensive hotels in the world, but also budget-priced hostels and inexpensive inns. In Los Angeles, a car opens up a world of lodging options, allowing you to stay outside the city proper and still have easy access to most major tourist attractions. If you don't mind splurging, consider Hollywood or Beverly Hills. To save money, stay near the airport or in the eastern suburbs of the city.
