If you like an adventure, and like to save money, this shopping is for you. Prices are great and styles are in fashion with some stores better than others. No even close to Rodero Drive, but very interesting. People, people, people everywhere. Kinda reminds me of Mexico.

I was in LA over Thanksgiving this year and visited the Alley Market of LA. Fantastic atmosphere and so many great deals. My mother and I ended up buying a huge duffel bag with wheels and filled it up and the convenience of not having to carry so many bags was great. Highly recommend any visitor to try this place...

One can get almost any kind of clothing here. Or one can just go down and people watch. Raid the discount rack for one dollar shirts.

We went there on a Saturday morning and the place was packed with stores. All kinds of things for sale: wedding/party decorations, fabrics, bags, clothes, etc. They are located in their own areas, so first we only saw fabric stores and as we wandered further, came the bag and clothes stores. There’s also a dollar store, where I found lots... More

The reviews were mixed when I read about the LA Fashion District and unfortunately I agree with those which were negative. My partner and I came here in the hope we would find some unique LA fashion for a good price. What we found was an area full of stores which look like either wholesalers (for fabric & costume jewellery)... More

I love to shop! There were so many shops in the Fashion districts, I didn't know where to start. Generally, the apparel is moderately priced and I would advice you allocate at least a day to shop so that you get to have a look in a few more stores than we did.

We had high hopes for the fashion district after having visited some of the expensive malls in LA. Whilst there may be bargains to be had here, it's mostly row upon row of cheap stuff of poor quality.

This place felt like I was at a bigger version of a cheap flea market. I did not see a single thing I wanted to buy. It felt like a complete waste of time to visit this place. It's probably okay if price is your only motivation and you do not care about quality.

Take a day and go to the fashion district. You will not believe the buys you can find. Plus food, drinks and more fun as you can walk miles shopping.

Maybe this place is live on the weekends but wow was it ever ghetto on Tuesday afternoon. Walked out quicker then we did walking toward it. The jewelry district is better.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
