A wonderful place to visit for luch and to get some great fresh fruit. Much bigger than looks from the outside and a huge selection from braziallian, italian, french, sweets, fruit, amazing fresh lemonade ...... Lots of souvenir places and most places to sit are in the shade - very welcome in the scorching heat !

We like walking around here when we are visiting The Grove. Our kids like stopping and grabbing a bite here and a bite there. Some of the treats are a little overpriced, but we try to share a specialty caramel apple and a few plates of food and it ends up being a nice day. Bring cash, some of the... More

I have been going to the Original Farmers Market for three decades and counting. The first thing to remember is that this is not a typical grower's market that one finds throughout the US. It is, in fact, a large group of food stalls from Malay to Jewish to Chinese to Spanish, etc. There are several souvenir stalls, fruit stalls,... More

Lots of different types of food. Not much actual "Farmers Market", ie produce. There are 2 or 3 butcher shops and 1 produce market that I saw. The rest were restaurants, bakeries and a few shopping stores. Overall it was fun and very lively. Prices were decent with a few places in the 10+ dollar range. There's a cheese shop... More

Interesting shops and restaurants with a variety of cuisines. Just a fun place to roam around, try different foods and stroll through a fruit stand and toy shop. There was such a variety of foods, we tried several. Everything was good. So, if you have some time, and love to window shop foods from around the world, try this.

I loved this place. It has such a european vibe to it. The fountains are magical. There is plenty to do and see here. I feel that 2 hours is not enough. I will definitely be back and even if its only to walk around in the scenery.

Went here and had a great time in the farmers market at the grove. The market is very busy with lots going on but the food is amazing ! However it can be difficult to find a seat. The grove is very nice and a bit more room to move around, lots of good shops and perfect place to people... More
