This was an absolute blast. My family and I loved every single thing that we tried. We ended up coming back for lunch the next day to sample a little more. Definitely a must do in LA.

We had a wonderful time with this tour. Our guide was knowledgeable and very friendly. We enjoyed every single bakery. We had more than an enough of these great desserts. We walked and burned some calories to make room for more!

It has been several years since I did the Melting Pot Food Tour of the Original Farmer's Market and 3rd st. It was very enjoyable and thought it was very well organized and informative. Am looking forward to doing another one soon - perhaps Pasadena!

I highly recommend the Farmer's Market Tour! I've been to the Farmer's Market several times, but I learned so much more about it on this tour! I surprised my boyfriend with tickets. I will admit, he was a bit reluctant to take the tour, but he had a blast!! Our guide was fun and knowledgeable, our group was small and... More

This was a fun tour and I had a chance to try restaurants that I never would have known about. It was well organized and just the right length.

Raindrops on roses, And Melting Pot Tours, These are a few of My favorite things. Didn't Julie Andrews sing this in “The Sound of Music?” The tour I had with awesome!

Although it's been several years since my husband and I took the Farmer's Market Food Tour, I thoroughly enjoyed it and have recommended it to friends visiting the L.A. area. The food samplings were delicious, we met some interesting people on the tour and would take the tour again if our travels take us to the L.A. area.

Melting Pot's Tour of the LA Farmer's Market was spectacular! We went with two other couples and we all had a great time! We learned the history of Farmer's Market while sampling some very tasty delights! Great way to spend the day!
