Gift & Specialty Shop Shopping
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.

  • Once upon a time, this was an actual farmers market, you could even bid on a herd of cattle. Today, The Original Farmer's Market is geared toward the modern metropolis it inhabits. While you can still...  more »
  • An interesting experience with high-end stores in the Grove on one end and the simple farmers Market on the other end. I enjoyed it but I did not find it to be a true farmers market ...more like a foo...  more »
  • For those who come to L.A. This is a place not to miss for its attractions, both shopping for food, where the choice is very wide and diverse. I ate the usual pastrami sandwich (grilled meat and topped with sauerkraut and sauces). Good and especially fun because wanting then you can also do shopping (butchery, grocery store, farmers market bakery). Wide choice of dessert or ice cream. For all budgets

  • 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.
  • This is a treasure. I have love to come here and dine, shop and people watching is amazing. Quality and boutique food shopping here. a great destination for tourists
  • 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.
