so fun!

Farmers Market was excellent for us, we never had to agree on where to eat (we are all indecisive) for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and late night ice cream, i am so glad we were close to this unique eating establishment.

I would no longer describe it as a Farmers Market, where you expect to find fresh produce sold directly by the growers. However, you will find some really good local eateries and bakeries, and some nick knacks. Most people go there for the food! And the food is worth it! Nothing fancy, but that translates into relaxed and affordable (unlike... More

If visiting LA, don't get suckered into this place - sure, some nice shops and some yummy food, but not worth the hassle of traffic, parking, and disappointment learning that you are wasting your time when you could actually be checking out so much more interesting things as a tourist. If you want to go to a shopping center like... More

Don't miss the original Farmer's Market next to the Grove. What a place and a piece of history. There is something for everyone there: food, gifts and a chance to see what it was like 50 years ago. Altho the Grove is next to the , steps away, I think the important visit is to the vendors, food stand( everything... More

You should definitely visit this place. It's a charming little area full of organic produce, quaint eating places, and specialty shops. If you are with a group and everyone is craving different types of food, this is a must. It's a great place to people watch and take in a nice meal, have a coffee, grab food for dinner, or... More

You may get to visit the Farmers Market as part of a tour. There are great food options to choose from but its not cheap by any means. $10 for most items of food. That will add up if you have a big family. We had lunch here on 2 days..they have clean toilets..lots of ATM machines and plenty of... More

My sisters and I came here after we went to Grand Central Market which is just down the street. Great ace to hang out and try fruits and veggies and sweets from the candy store and meats from the deli. Was walk around and appreciate the great food and atmosphere. Not to mention adjoined to The Grove.

I disliked the intense crowds. I had a tuna salad sandwich from a seafood vendor and did not like it at all. There was no tomato or other things i would expect with a sandwich. Just bread and tuna which was dry. We were there on Saturday. We returned there on a Tuesday to continue exploring the market. There are... More

On a recent trip to L.A. my son and I stopped at The Farmers Market for lunch. We loved the variety of shops and freshness of everything. Great place to grab a bite outdoors! We will definitely go back!
