What an excellent way to experience Farmers Market. Our tour guide Andrew was knowledgable and keep us entertained. Food was excellent with a variety of foods to taste. Accommodated vegetarians and did not make us feel unwelcome. Bring your appetitive because you will need it. If you are from LA or visiting make sure to take this tour.

We went on the farmers market tour with our extended family and everyone from age 15 to 76 loved it! It was interesting and tasty and fun for all. We had almost a full meal after all our tastes. Diane, our guide, was so nice and made us feel like we were part of her farmers market family!

My entire family (even my 2 teenage boys) loved it . Our tour guide, Andrew, was extremely knowledgeable as well as very very funny. The food was delicious. Knowing the history of the Farmers Market made it much more enjoyable. After the tour, my sister & I purchased some meat & produce as well as treated ourselves to a glass... More

I was amazed by the Melting Pot Food Tour to the Farmers Market in Los Angeles! Even though I live in that area and go constantly to the farmers Market, I really didn't know a lot about the history of that place and all the amazing food they have there. Awesome experience and the tour host, Lisa Scalia was super... More

The tour was amazing. Diane was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable - about the food (since she's a chef herself) and about the farmer's market history & people (since she grew up going to the market and continues to frequent it very regularly). The food was delicious, and it was just a wonderful experience.

This was such a great tour. I have visited and worked in Pasadena but have never experienced these local hot spots. Can't wait to do another Los Angeles tour with Melting Pot Tours. You guys are the best!

The East LA Latin Tour was exceptional, the food was varied (not just Mexican tacos!) and of high quality, and the host Andrew was knowledgable and personable in introducing our group to this interesting historic neighbourhood of LA. Melting Pot's tours are not just about food, but are a fantastic way to get to know LA

Thank you Andrew for a very entertaining and informative tour. Our family thoroughly enjoyed the food and the historical farmers market. Great way to learn some history and try new food. We also enjoyed meeting the other people on the tour. Definitely recommend for individual, couple or family!
