We only spent an hour here during our Day in LA Tour, wish we had more time! So many choices for lunch, I will spend more time there the next time I visit! We had Cajun and Chinese food, both very good! Wish we had saved room for a crepe! I would highly recommend this place to eat and hang... More

if you're looking for a market, forget it. there are a couple of places in there where you can buy exotic groceries, but for the most part it is like a gourmet food court

I love this place. It's like home to me. It's one of the first places I used to have coffee and write when I first arrived in Los Angeles. For nostalgia, I always park here and walk to the Grove. It's for tourists, but the locals love the food and the relaxed, no-frills atmosphere. I buy my fish and organic... More

Great place to eat lots of alternatives for a meal and each family member can have something different. Very interesting shops wish we had more time there as there is plenty to explore.

We were on the Grand Tour of L.A. and the Farmers Market was our one hour stop for lunch. The bus dropped us off here and we could explore on our own. It is truly hard to explain what it's like. You'd honestly have to see it to believe it. There are SO many options. Even for picky eaters like... More

When in town I am always sure to hit this place. It is an LA staple. We stopped by the food stalls (some of which I went to 10 years ago when I was working in the city) before heading to a live taping of the Price is Right. This place is great because they have something for everyone. Some... More

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

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
