Established in 1934, when a dozen local farmers parked their trucks on an open field (once a dairy farm) to sell fresh produce to local residents, the Market has remained true to its roots ever since. With nearly 100 dining, shopping and grocery opportunities, Farmers Market has something for everyone. More than seventy-five years later the Farmers Market remains the one stop shop for every visitor’s needs.

Visited as part of a LA bus tour, we were impressed with the range of food available. With lots of history, from the old gas station out the front, to some historic stalls, as well as delicious food choices, we found plenty to immerse ourselves in.

This was our lunch time stop on a guided tour of LA and I'm glad we did. There are more than enough choices for everyone in your group, young to old. It is tricky to navigate and easy to get lost so leave breadcrumbs!

Hustle and bustle. People and foods from all over. Prices reflect the tourist market, not your neigh who'd farmers market. Parking is close by and easy in and out. Lots of food choices.

Great selection of many many foods!! All the food, candy, fruits & breads are amazing! The only Bad part or down side is that most of the vendors will only take cash 🙄 - no cash no food

Too crowded on the weekend. Very hard to find parking. Lots always full. Food is good. I like the one with Brazilian BBQ. They charged by the pound. As a small eater, a lunch is very affordable. The chicken and lamb are good.

This place is still a classic in Los Angeles. Now surrounded by stores but you can have a good time walking eating and drinking at the old market

This is a definite "must go to" when visiting Los Angeles. There is plenty of fresh produce, great treats, and fun people to meet throughout your visit.
