Went there on a Sunday. The shops and restaurants were authentic Mexican. There are a lot of shops in a small area selling Mexican style wares. This was a very neat experience and would highly recommend visiting this place.

Lots of small shops and eateries. Good if you want trinkets with a Mexican flair. Sort of a "farmer's market" feel with open air stalls, etc.

Don't skip this pedestrian street. Eat in one of the small taco eateries. The buildings are gorgeous. The souvenirs stands are reasonably priced.

It's part historical and part commercial market but on a very small scale. Lots of traditional Mexican Restaurants. Unfortunately did not have time to see. This was a side trip after I had been to Central Station so filled in the afternoon.

The Olvera Street “market” consists of store fronts and stands selling cheap T-shirts, trinkets, Dia de Muertos products, (fake?) leather goods, and other bizarre things over one city block. It’s only worth a look if you are in the area already, and is no different...More

The area where it all started. See an original home from the beginnings of LA and shop the stalls where you can get authentic mexican food at half the price of just about anywhere else in LA. It is a perfect place to shop for...More
