We had been told before our visit to the Farmers Market that the food choices were mind-boggling and that's the truth. We lucked into The Gumbo Pot, a fine traditional New Orleans style cajun cafe. The price was inexpensive, the food very good. We had Oyster Po Boys and split a dish of Jambalay. A lot of food for the... More

Finally some great cheap food in la. We went to the bar here for happy hour drinks and then a Brazilian buffet place that had amazing bbq chicken wrapped in bacon. Can't recommend this place enough.

Lots of great food. Sooooo many choices. Loved the spice shop and the gourmet market. Have a good walk around before choosing where to eat....you will be tempted to eat everywhere!!! Pick the food that matches your mood and I'm sure you'll find it. Very affordable and a good destination when visiting the area.

I have been going here since I was a child, when it was just the Farmers Market, without The Grove next to it. It has remained a wonderful place for locals as well as out-of-towners! There is something for everyone! So don't miss this spot and come hungry!

Foodies will be in their heaven here. I would come here to eat all the time if I lived around here. So many options, authentic, home-made food, and cheap! If you're visiting the Grove, save your money on those upscale restaurants and get some good food here!

An icon in LA that gets better with age, this covered outdoor cafe and shopping area mixes foods from around the world. You need to be eagle eyed to get a seat (do this first), then choose you food. From awesome pastries to full course meals this place is for you. Not necessarily good for younger kids because of the... More
