    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.

    Try the New Orleans food stand.

    the Grove is right next to The Grove Shopping Center. Park in same lot.

    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!

    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

    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.

    Not your typical Farmer's Market. This Farmer's Market is stationary and can be visited any time of the week!

    I find myself here more often for the food stalls than produce. There are so many great places to eat like Loteria, Short Stop, The Gumbo Pot, The French Crepe Company and more.

    This is one of my favorite places to eat in LA. It's casual and there is lots of selection -- whether you want crepes or a sandwich, there are many booths inside for you to choose from. You might get lost though, it's like a maze in there. On weekend days, there are huge crowds here and parking is tough - so don't count on getting in and out too efficiently!

Description:

The LA Farmers Market has evolved from a group of farmers selling their wares in a dirt parking lot to its modern day venue, a beautiful row of shops, restaurants and produce stalls. Known as a mecca for both Los Angeles foodies and tourists, the variety of specialty foods is impressive - stock up on meat at Huntington Meats & Sausage, buy fresh linguine at Pappardelle's Pasta, and get a snack for the ride home at the Magic Nut & Candy Company stall. Stores full of knickknacks and quality appliances alike dot the street, and it's easy to come away with both groceries and a few new wardrobe additions.
