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.

In my trip planning research for LA, I don't remember reading about this place, but it is amazing and well worth the time! There are many different restaurants and shop fronts; I wished I could spend all day there. We ate some of the best pancakes in the world at Du-Par's and then topped those off with coffee-in-a-waffle at Waffleshot.... More

When I was a girl and we came to LA, we never visited the Original Farmers Market - I can't believe we never came! My children - now teens - love the Market. It couldn't be more different from our famous home market - Pike Place in Seattle. Both offer spectacular opportunities... The main thing here is food food food.... More

I was not expecting this type of ambient, i was really suprised and impressed. Fresh food, vegetables, fruits, quite warm restaurants, taste of local culture etc. I will definetely put Farmers Market in my trip plan for the next time.

You think "farmer's market" you think people selling various types of produce that they grew themselves. Well, not here. There's a small produce market, but it's very small. Mostly this place is a lot of food stands. There is a fresh fish counter, and a "gourmet" grocery with lots of French stuff in it. But mostly you appear to come... More

Large variety of food to eat or buy. We had Turkish good hummus taboule and falafels but avoid shawarma. Sliced early and put in salty holding tank. Plenty of shops.
