    Food stalls with an array of different cuisines as well as fresh fruit, baked goods, and even a store dedicated solely to tabasco! Loved the vintage take on some of the stores.

    Opened in 1934 and with much of its original flavor — the freshest produce, gourmet meats and cheeses, and hot donuts — plus a few extra touches (gluten-free pizza, gumbo, authentic Mexican food).

    I come here a lot. Really nice farmers market. Food, trinkets and almost everything else. Right next to The Grove so you could spend a whole day. Well worth the visit.

    This farmers market reminds me of the tapas markets in Madrid. Get there early to grab a seat and eat savory crepes while you watch the hustle and bustle as everything opens.

    Not your traditional farmers market where you'll expect fruit and vegetable stands, there is some but the majority are restaurants that range from Cajun to Mediterranean to regular good ol' barbecue

    Try one of everything! Yes, that’s a LOT... so you’ll have to come back multiple times. Everything I ate here was delicious. This is a “must do” for every LA visit for me.

    A historic market with over 100 grocers, specialty shops, and restaurants. It is a favorite among the locals and tourists since 1934. There's something for everyone here!

    Been going here since I was a kid. It's a favorite. If you're from out of town or you've never been, you've got to go there. Lots of movies being filmed there too.

    Visit at sunset, grab a table, get a beer, and grab some food. Life will be good.Pro-tip: park in the lot on the left as you're driving in. Just don't forget to get your parking validated.

    A wonderful place filled with the cuisines of the world. This place is a foody mecca. More of a bazaar than a market. Be warned the grove parking is a completely different entity.

    For a quick bite, head here and try the mole poblano at Lotería Grill (Stall 322) or get a burger at Short Order (Stall 110).

    We love coming here for the food and atmosphere. They also have a lot of fresh produce you can buy.

    I prefer picking an exotic piece of fruit myself, however dangerous the circumstances, but the quality and selection of tastes here might be worth risking your life for as well, should it be crowded.

    I go out of my way to buy groceries here... Freshest fruits, vegetables, and meats in all LA! Try Farm Boy for fruits/vegetables, Puritan Poultry for chicken, & Huntington Meats for meats and sausage

    If you see an open spot in the Farmers Market parking lot, grab it! Make sure you get a 2-hour validation pass from any of the merchants inside (but not from stores in The Grove).

    A foodie's paradise and gawker's delight, it's right behind CBS where DWTS & American Idol tape. Home to the Pinkberry test shop, you'll get to try things that may not be rolled out!
