The Farmers market was great to grab a bite to eat and explore the stalls. I wasn't expecting it to actually be a built fixed market (I thought they would just be temporary stalls in a car park) so that was a lovely surprise! Recommend coming for a look before visiting The Grove next door!

Priced are high for fresh fruits but they are good. Visiting the dog food boutique shows you how important they are... More

It is a touristy place in LA, a "must go" sometime if you are around (in Page Museum or La Musem of Art, for example). There is a pavilion with restaurants, grocery stores, and places that sell fruits. The restaurants are overpriced and just a few places sell fruits (which I think is curious in a Farmers Market!). Outside this... More

This was our lunch time stop while doing a Hollywood and Los Angeles tour. It is a historic Los Angeles landmark and tourist attraction that has any kind of cuisine imaginable available. The food stalls vary from American to Latin American and Asian cuisines. There is also plenty of fresh produce available to purchase. The main problem is that we... More

Recently strolled thru the Farmer's Market, as it was the meeting place for our LA tour. What a great market! Lots of shops, eateries, produce, baked goods, etc. We also had lunch at the burger joint on the corner, great find! If in LA, it's definitely worth a visit.

The Farmer's Market, which is close to The Grove shopping area is a great place to walk around and experience. This is a great place for a foodie with a lot of different places to eat and a lot of different types of food and treats!

I went there with my wife and teenage daughters. Told them about the place and they loved it. To be honest it was very good but a bit touristy. We moved on to the shopping mall next door and they loved it.

We found the Farmers Market by chance whilst hopping off the sightseeing bus and so glad we did. Stayed for a few hours browsing at all the delis, shops and finally opted for a coffee and doughnut which did not disappoint. It caters for all food styles so go around more than once before you decide.

We happened to be here in search of luch during city tour of LA. Its quite crowded as expected, found one shop where we had one decent lunch in open. Lots of small shops, and you can get anything for your household items.
