The Original Farmers Market, Los Angeles

4.4
Over 100 vendors sell a wide variety of cuisines from around the world at The Original Farmers Market. What's now an outdoor market started as a place for a few local farmers to sell their produce from their trucks during the Depression. The farmers' market quickly transformed into the massive permanent outdoor market that still stands in the same place. While there are no longer any actual farmers selling produce, the market has retained the original feel by prohibiting big chains, and keeping vendors local.

  • You can find so much hot nesso, which if you're not careful, you can lose your tour bus. There you'll find cafeterias with Fast Food and also places to buy fresh food and bring it to your House or hotel.

  • It was one of the places I love the most of the whole trip. Difficult is choosing what and where to eat. If you are Miss, got a great brazilian Steakhouse (the Pampas Grill) in the plate by weight, very hot. Many sweets, sandwiches, seafood, coffee, fruit ... love it! It's next to a beautiful Mall, The Grove. We spent a very nice time there.

  • You will probably spend a bit of money here because there are so many different shops at this place. There’s lots of food stalls here and most of them are great. They offer a variety of cuisines and no place is really the same. Outside of food there are some cool places to get souvenirs and other things like tea, games, clothing, and pretty much everything. It is a little tightly packed but it adds something about the place that makes it have a pleasant feeling. This is definitely a cool and cheap place to hang out for an hour or two.
  • There are lots of great stores here! What I like most is, they have that they have souvenir shops with lots of stuff inside! Great for tourists like me! They also have stores specific for pizza, ice cream, cheese, Mexican food, etc! That makes it authentic! Tables are also available for those dining in.
  • Be prepared to walk and enjoy different kind of food and shops. Fresh produce and meats. Affordable prices. I loved it. If u come to LA is a place that you have to visit!!! You won’t be disappointed
  • So many varieties of fresh food and meals. Can be a little crowded at times but good places have lots of customers. I come here every other weekend or so to get my all natural strawberry smoothy. Overall, great selection of food and pleasant place to hang out.
  • Amazing place. THE Original Farmers Market! You cannot find a more incredible assortment of stores. From fresh produce to actual meat butchers to Fresh Hand Made Toffee to amazing Ice Cream!!! I could spend a week here. Loved it.
