Opened in 1934, during the Great Depression, this is Los Angeles's original Farmers Market. It began when San Fernando Valley farmers, lacking middlemen for their produce, were given an opportunity to rent stall space on idle land in the Fairfax area in order to sell their produce directly to consumers.
As part of a 1941 expansion and reconstruction project the landmark Clock Tower was erected at Farmers Market. The 2002 opening of an adjoining shopping center, The Grove, and the prevalence of weekend "farmers' markets" throughout the Los Angeles area have diminished Farmers Market's quaintness. However, I have friends who I sometimes believe, who insist that a number of the small eating-places within Farmers Market make any trip there worthwhile.

There are local framers markets listed in our guest book. Some are walking distance form the house. One of my favorites overlooks the ocean , you can shop with the dolphins! We even offer the Farmers Market cookbook for your use.
The LA Farmers Market, advertised here, is quite a treat and beside a great upscale shopping center

A nice open market with tons of food stalls, fresh produce, and crafts and trinkets. It's often busy, though, and the food tent can be smelly and dirty - which is a little worrisome. But it's a nice place to check out at least once.

This has been a Los Angeles landmark forever!
A great place to get any type of food product you could ever want.
The meat market and cheese store offer hard to find foods all under the same roof.
I love Bennett's Ice Cream and it has been in the same location for 50 years.
you can have coffee, buy candles, and get your fortune told all while eating barbeque...The perfect day!

Unlike any other place, especially with The Grove built right next to it! Catch a daily shoot of Mario Lopez' TV show featuring visiting celebs. Take the tram as it goes around the the combined market and mall. Fantastic, all-day spree for families with children.Recommended for:Family Travelers

One of the best places to dine in L.A. So many choices and great food. The Mexican and Middle Eastern can't be beat. Great donuts and ice cream as well. Take the opportunity to buy fresh produce or baked goods while there.

I adore the farmers market! I can take or leave the Grove, but the farmer's market is one-of-a-kind and I hope it never gets demolished, because there is plenty of new construction in LA, but it's the historical places like the Farmer's Market that make the city great.Recommended for:History Buffs

It's exciting to walk through this market with so many food vendors gathered in one place, however, most of the food here is just okay. The Brazilian barbecue place is good and I've also heard good things about the Malaysian place.
