The Original Farmers Market, Los Angeles

4.4
Over 100 vendors sell a wide variety of cuisines from around the world at The Original Farmers Market. What's now an outdoor market started as a place for a few local farmers to sell their produce from their trucks during the Depression. The farmers' market quickly transformed into the massive permanent outdoor market that still stands in the same place. While there are no longer any actual farmers selling produce, the market has retained the original feel by prohibiting big chains, and keeping vendors local.

    I loved this place full of products and food from different parts of the world, excellent attention from everyone, I tried delicious Mexican and Asian food, no doubt it is a different place to meet

    When you're in LA, go to the farmer's market. The location is super nice, has a cable car, a source, several shops and restaurants. In Saturday night's musical presentation, take personal towels, sit on the lawn and enjoy. Perfect family ride.

    During our stay in Los Angel (Los Angeles) we had to eat at the Farmer's Market with coupons. Those not arrived (lack organization) we went to tour the many newsboys and restaurants to choose what we could eat. A lot of people, difficulties to find a sitting corner. Fairly typical but is still quite expensive. See and do to account.

    Went over here after a taping of the Price is Right. What an incredible place! All sorts of vendors, and delicious eateries. Makes me wish I lived in the area to regularly shop my produce and meats there.

    Great food and great atmosphere. Must place to go when visiting LA!!! It's pretty much always crowded during the summer and holidays, but still love taking the fam here.

    My favorite farmer's market with a variety of eateries, read, fruits and meats for sale. My favorite little shop in here is the French one, Monsieur Marcel... a lot of French produce for your kitchen. Grab some tacos, ice cream, Italian food... If you don't want to sit down and eat in a cafeteria environment, its right by the Grove you can do a sit down restaurant there. Try Dupar's chicken pot pie or pancakes... or Laduree for dessert if you decide for the Grove instead.

    Awesome spot! You get to go through the farmer's market and try different food; my favorite is the tuna sambal. After, walk at the Grove and sit by the fountain for a relaxing afternoon. And finish your day at the movie theater.

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.
