Visited recently and would recommend. The food at the farmers market is very good with lots of fresh produce. The food court offers a wide selection of different foods from traditional American to Chinese and Cuban. There's also lots of sweets, icecream etc for kids. Shopping is also good and at Christmas time it has a nice feel with santas... More

When in Los Angeles, be sure and go to the Farmer's Market , fair fax and 3rd Avenue. I went there as a kid in 1955 or so. It is old LA.charming! and if you have jet lag, go to DuPar's for buttermilk pancakes and chocolate donuts. Open 24 hours

An extremely touristy place selling produce and cooked food. Yet, nothing caught my eye or appealed to my stomach as I strolled through it. All the food we had were overpriced.

This is where you go to buy local. This is where you go to buy fresh. This is where you go to support your local community :) Great selection of fruits, vegetables, flowers, cheeses, breads, juices and of course, there's some clothing, jewelry & other very creative items for sale.

One of our favorite places to dine. Walk ten feet to a different restaurant at are all good. It is fun to watch people too being that it's Hollywood. The weather always seems to be great to enjoy eating outdoors but if it rains for a minute it's mostly covered so no problem. It sometimes takes a few minutes for... More

I've been to many different places in my life, but this one was nothing like anything I've ever seen. I have no idea how many shops/markets are in there but I know we didn't see everything. Lots of celebs shop here and now I see why. This beats a grocery store any day. Get everything you need in one location... More

We were here in the afternoon after lunch. We started going through the grove which is next to the market. Late afternoon, we sat down for coffee and food offered at different stalls. It is a bit pricey compared to other places we have been through. It is interesting though to go through the different shops and see what they... More

We visited the Farmers Market for lunch while we were on a bus tour of Los Angeles. It really surpassed our expectations and we would have liked to stay for longer. There are lots of interesting shops and many food stalls with a variety of different types of foods to try as well as the opportunity to buy unusual craft... More

It's different than any other farmer's markets that I have been to but this one could be a bit better. There is just plenty of things to choose from and you could also walk around and check out all the food places because they have a variety of food from every culture which I thought was pretty cool. Even though... More
