"Amazing Fresh Food!"

I visited the Original Farmers Market with my teenage daughter.  It is located in the same space as The Grove shopping center and I've heard nothing but good things about this place.

The Good:  I loved the various stands selling meat, cheese, fruits, veggies, etc. and all the food stands located within the Original Farmers Market.  My senses were gratified and refreshed by the sights and scents of the food around me and, being the lover-of-all-things-food that I am, I didn't want to leave.  The teen, however, had other ideas and I managed to grab some dried fruit from The Magic Nut & Candy Company and an Original Farmers Market reusable tote (only $1!) on the way out.

The Bad: I loved visiting the Original Farmers Market but, unfortunately, there's just not enough going on for a teen I guess.  My teenager was bored to tears and kept asking "Can we go now?".  It probably doesn't help that we ate just before getting there so the food wasn't enticing enough to her.

Overall:  I LOVED it and will definitely make a return trip the next time I'm in L.A. - I'll just make sure that we're hungry before we go.

"Great outdoor eating"

The atmosphere of this outdoor eatery is relaxed and comfortable. It is family friendly because it works like a food court: everyone can choose what they want to eat. I enjoyed friend shrimp while my son had pizza. There were hardly any spots to eat but I found the upstairs area which was open and fairly empty.  The windows were open to the fresh air and it was like eating in the tree tops.

"Make a day of it!"

This is a fabulous place.  Not only can you do a little grocery shopping for top notch fruits, vegetables, nuts, candy, meat, & bread (farmers market style)  There are amazing restaurants here as well.  A must is the Brazilian Meat place, I'm vegetarian and there are still plenty of really good choices.  Also come for breakfast, the crepe place is heaven.  All the seating is outdoor, some is covered some not.  There are also small gift shoppes too.  After you eat or do a little shopping you can keep walking to the Grove.  (They are right next to each other)  A beautiful out door mall.  There is usually live music being played in the little grass area by Nordstroms.  There are tons of shops and kiosks, even more restaurants...enough stuff to keep you busy all day.  It's nice to bring the kids out here, because it's outside, they can be loud, run around, and be kids.  Also while your enjoying some music they can play on the grass area with all the other kids that are there enjoying the day.

"yummmmmmmmy"

This is a huge Farmer’s Market. There are so many different cuisines to choose from. My favorite is the chocolate beignets…yummmmmm yummmmm.  Make sure to look around first…then you can choose what to eat. It is a permanent market…so a lot of it is covered. And then of course you have the benefit of being right next door The Grove. So you can hit two birds with one stone.
It can be a little crowded and sometimes the space is tight…especially if you don’t travel light. If you have little ones that run off…this might not be the place for you…yet…
It is very interesting to see the fish mongers and a lot of other things that you might not get to see at just a produce farmers market. Sometimes they also have a great selection of more exotic fruits too.
I don’t know if it would take you all day to walk through…but it’s definitely worth the trip…especially if you combine it with The Grove.

"Fun with the Family"

This is the Westside’s answer to downtown’s Grand Central Market, with seventy restaurants, produce stands, and retail stores thriving since 1934.
