I've heard of this farmer's marker for the past 25 years but never get a chance to visit. Well, mid February I finally got a chance to see this place. Very enjoyable! We wandered through the various shops and gotten plenty of souvenirs for friends and ourselves. Yes, it was a tourist trap and we were tourists so... We tried... More

Great place to have lunch. Here you can find the real flavor of LA. In addition, in the country where you pay fro everything, parking in free of charges during 2 hours.

I stayed within walking distance of the Farmer’s Market so it was a fantastic place to grab a bite and do some people watching. I was traveling solo so it was great to just walk around here and ponder what sounded good for dinner. I must warn you that there are tons of cuisine options so you may need extra... More

Make sure you have enough room in your stomach when you come here, there is so much you can eat, and you will want to try a little bit of everything! It is also a nice place to talk to locals.

The area isn't very big, parking was easy, the food stalls were plentiful with a lot of variety, and there was a nice variety of specialty items. At one of the spots, we had crepes and fruit for brunch and they were delicious. We bought some great pistachio butter, and we spent a lot of time in the gourmet French... More

It was just lovely visiting the place. So beautiful with shops around & even a good option for bon appetite. The live music band which will just make you do a little dancing. Sit on the ground, enjoy your favorite Hagen Dazes ice cream & you are done for the day.

A stop at the farmers market is a must if visiting Los Angeles. It is a great place to pick up souvenirs and grab a bite to eat with a very cosmopolitan fare on offer. Great location to just sit and people watch also, visited here whilst visiting the nearby mall

It's tons of fun to explore; crammed full of eateries and shops with items from across the globe. With permanent shops, it's like Pikes Place in Seattle. The creperie is great; I always go. Bob's donuts has amazing buttermilk donuts with white frosting from heaven. Parking is validated. Located immediately next to the Grove, which is fun to walk around,... More
