The farmers market was hands down one of my favourite places to visit in LA. I went to LA for a trip in April 2013 and ended up going to the market 3 times during my stay.
There are endless food choices there, including Mexican, Chinese, Bakeries, French, Seafood etc. There are lots of tables (some covered, others with umbrellas), so you can eat there regardless of the weather. There were also some sit down restaurants as well. Everything was very affordable, which is good when you are travelling
In addition to the food, there was some good shopping as well. You can buy souvenirs, recycled products, vintage products, jewelry etc, and there is a whole store devoted to stickers. They also have bathrooms that are open to the public.
The Grove, which is an outdoor shopping mall, is located right behind the market. The Grove is set up to look like a European outdoor shopping area, so you can access all sort of name band stores right there.
All in all, I loved the atmosphere at the market and it is a can't miss stop in LA. One of the hop on and hop off bus companies stops right there, so there is no excuse.
