“Great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013 via mobile

Great selection of fruits and vegetables. I had a fruit juice there, was overpriced. Got some great pictures there, overall nice crowd and atmosphere.

“Great food, fun atmosphere and The Grove”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

I have been going to Farmer's Market since I was 2 and I am now in my 50's. Other than a couple of changes to the stores, everything is the same as I remember. Probably the best fresh fruit and produce you can get anywhere in the city. Great to walk around and it is right next door to The Grove - which is how every mall should be in Southern California - outside, spectacular shopping and beautiful surroundings.

“Fun place to spend some time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

The Farmer's Market is a nice touch of old Los Angeles. It is a great place just to walk around and enjoy the sights and aromas. Most of the shops cater to the tourist trade but the locals go for the prepared food and the fresh fare of the vendors. You will be glad you went.

“Used to be a childhood favorite”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

This place is marked as "the Original" , well they should keep the place looking like they appreciate that title. Most of the food vendors have "B" ratings and it just feels like there are rodents, and infestations of bugs lurking in the dark. I don't know how they compete with all the amazing restaurants at the grove...
