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.

We stop here most of the time we are in the area. Great people watching spot. Wonderful food choices. So many to choose from it is hard to make up my mind each time. Bands on occasion to sit and listen to while eating. Beer, wine, and adult beverages available. Lots of cool shops to get touristy stuff. Great food... More

We came here for lunch when we had a pre booked tour and loved it so much we came back. The smells around this place are amazing, the food is delicious and we found a micro ale bar selling a variety of beers that we tried to work out way through! The staff at each point are friendly and there... More

My hotel was near to Farmers Market, it was fun to walk by the stalls, and see the produce, I believe is one the best places for certain items or foods.....and all seems more natural. Prices can be expensive sometimes, but worth the visit

Went on a rainy winter day (surprising for LA) and it was so crowded, but it was still incredibly lovely. Everything smelt wonderful, everyone was friendly, and I had a great time stuffing my face and listening to Christmas music in the distance. Loved the Clam Chowder and pizza, would definitely return again.

I can't believe in all my years I've not ever been to the Original Farmers Market. My mother used to talk about having gone there, and she went most likely in 1948 when she visited Southern California and later on beginning in 1953 when she moved there. Though I'm sure many of the food stalls have changed over the years,... More

They have an amazing place that makes fresh peanut butter right in front of you. Its situated beside a very upscale and nice outdoor mall, and has amazing food options from Acai bowls, to french onion soup. Cannot be missed!

We were taken here for a quick visit as part of a sightseeing tour. The smells from the numerous (busy) eating places were very enticing, but time was not on our side. The adjacent shopping centre was a nice place to look around. There is an old fashioned tram in operation, a water feature and live music when we went.... More

Bought the best lamb chops from the butcher here . Every type of food is here along with very fresh fruits and vegatables . I always enjoy a trip here and you can walk to the grove afterwards.
