Not very large but varied, at a price! We have bought there and have always been satisfied with the goods. Also eating places. Worth while to visit.

The Grand Central Market is a nice quick diversion while you're in the Grand Central Station area. It feels like a tiny subsection of the trendy Italian market "Eatly" has landed in the middle of all the commuter foot traffic. If you happen to be...More

I just love open food markets. This place is not huge, so you can't really get lost, but there are plenty of kiosks to browse and enjoy some really good food.

After a very tasty lunch at the Oyster Bar, I chanced on this corridor on the way to the subway. What a pleasant surprise! Fine spices, numerous delicacies--competes with Zabars in many ways and is a perfect convenience for a tired commuter.

Maybe it was just us, but we found it OK but not particularly special. The items were fairly unique but just not very appealing to us, especially at the seemingly high prices. We spent perhaps an hour or so and went on. Not disappointing but...More

Come off the train and take it all in, have a taco, beer, cupcake from Marigolds and catch your breath before you dive into the hustle and bustle of the city. There’s something for everyone.

Wot a great market. Individual units set out to make them so visually attractive. Lots of natural colour. The cheese and fish units were a particular favourite. Wonderful tea and herbs place too. Well worth visiting if in the area.

I do not know. Most of the vendors are individually owned and not a part of the whole.

What to do in downtown? (6 Replies)
Hello! I'll be spending a long weekend (4/29-5/2) in LA with a couple girlfriends. We're staying in Venice, but want to spend some time in downtown. We'd like to check out Olvera Street, and see some other sights while we're in the area. Chinatown? Grand Central Market? Little Tokyo? We like street food, markets, mom and pop shops, cool stuff to photograph, and basically experiencing places we don't have in Minneapolis. We'll be walking or taking an Uber around. Also, would a...More

Chinatown, Grand Central Market, Little Tokyo, and Olivera Street are all close to each other and none of them takes a long time to see. Chinatown is the biggest of the neighborhoods. These ethnic communities have largely moved out of downtown and now have a big presence in other areas, but those suburban areas are harder to see and less colorful. If we want Thai food we go to Hollywood. For a big Chinese feast we go to Monterey Park. There are a lot of Korean restaurants in Koreatown, west...More

This is our plan for a Sunday in July, we'll have a rental car and want to go to the Farmer's Market and The Grove in the morning, then maybe onto Melrose Ave for a little shopping, then Downtown. Afterwards we're on to Anaheim for a few nights. In Downtown LA, we want to see Walt Disney Concert Hall, Catherdal of our Ladies, Union St, Bradbury Building, Olvera St, and Grand Central Market. What's the best way to do Downtown, drive from location to location? Park in one place - if so...More

Your Downtown places are all within within walking distance of each other, and the whole walk would be maybe a mile. It would be more hassle than it's worth to drive from place to place. So park and walk. Because it's Sunday you might be able to find a free on-street space, at any event lots will be cheaper than during weekdays. Grand Central Market is at the southern end of your group, near 3rd & Broadway, Union Station and Olvera St. are at the northern end.
