Really good food here. The prices were a bit high, but this is LA. Food was authentic and the portions were really a nice size. Went there for lunch, had a ton of places to choose from and we were super happy with our choice.

Ordered Jambalaya as a side was medium hot to spicy, good size portion to try for around 6 $. Enough meat included for the portion size unlike other reviewer experiences. Didn't expect N'Orleans quality so wasn't disappointed, tasted good. Counter help was nice enough. Experience overall was ok for the price.

Casual creole food served in the patio area of The Original Farmer's Market. During the Summer there is free music of all typs to enjoy while dining.

This is a nice place to have fish with a twist. Very different from your local fish&chips. Nice combinations and fresh stuff .

I am not an expert in Gajun specialities, but still like spicy food. So, I don't know what was wrong, yes it was spicy, but not tasty. We took gator and seafood gumbo. Too little seafood in seafood gumbo. gator one was just eatable. Blackened catfish was ok. We were disappointed,especially taking into consideration, that specifically visited Farmers Market for...

The Gumbo pot at the LA Farmer's market is like a taste of creole Louisiana. Their gumbo ya-ya is rich and flavorful and spicy. You can't beat it

The menu offer lots of great Cajun specialties. My husband did not enjoy the blackened salmon sandwich. He said it was bland and he actually didn't finish it. Sorry Gumbo pot, maybe he should have tried something else. Service was friendly and timely.

Unfortunately I wasn't very hungry when I ordered . We were loading up on food instead of spending a fortune at Dodger Stadium . I had the oyster po'boy and it was absolutely fabulous . It was quite large and everything tasted very fresh . There were a fair amount of oysters and they made me wish I could have... More

I came upon this during a tour stop at the Farmer's Market. The menu looked good, so I tried it. The jambalaya was very good, as were the hush puppies.Unfortunately they were out of the sweet potato fries, as I really wanted to try them. The portions were very good for the price.

Fun cajun food at the Farmer;s Market. Cafeteria style - find your own seat in the communal seating and then enjoy the food and the view.
