This was such a cute, fun place for lunch. All types of cuisines here...there's something for everyone! We really enjoyed walking around and checking things out and ate some delicious armenian pizzas and macarons while there. You can also check out the Grove while you're there because they're next to each other.

We visited the Original Farmers Market as part of the Grant Tour of Los Angeles and we were not disappointed. We have a 1 hour stop on the tour, so there was plenty of time to browse the market and grab lunch. There were so many choices it was hard to come to a decision. We ended up with a... More

Loved shopping at the Original Farmers Market. Nice souvenirs at great prices! Great options for treats and food. Also love that it is open to the outside ... all around wonderful experience. Highly recommend swinging by there when you are in the area.

This has always been a fun place to go for lunch. I've been coming here since I was a child so its also just a place that brings back many pleasant memories. For pie, of course, Du-Pars has been a long time anchor of Farmers; Market. The variety of food vendors always makes it fun to decide "what to have"... More

This was an all old school LA Trip. We came here just for the pancakes. 1 order to share and it was as perfect as I remembered from 45 years ago. I am not a pancake breakfast person so this says a lot

My all day LA tour stopped here for lunch. We only had a little over an hour and boy was it hard to choose where to eat.. so much to choose from! Lots of interesting places to eat and shops. We just didn't have enough time. Definitely worth a visit.

This is a good place to go for great food and to see what the locals have to offer. It is a combination of streetside stands and supermarkets in one convenient area.

We have gone to this market every visit to California since I was a kid. Tons of food moderately priced, quick and easy to try something new while just hanging out. Great place to meet up before or after visiting the connected Grove outdoor mall or CBS Studios. You might get lucky and catch an actor wandering around or just... More

Rather, it is a space shared by a ton of restaurants. Some are good. Some are not. The Grove is next door. It is very touristy, yet at the same time a haunt for locals. Avoid the coffee shop at the southwest corner.

Love the adventure of this place and also the variety of options! I was surprised by the "Farmer's Market " when suggested by a coworker and never really hearing about it before , I expected Fruit and Vegetable stands. This place is a open " food court " of some of the best food ! Must visit if in LA... More
