Farmers Markets

5 Grand Central Market
The oldest and largest farmers market in Los Angeles, Grand Central Market is a must-see for visitors and a must-shop for locals. Located in the historic Homer Laughlin Building, this covered bazaar houses more than 38 vendors, selling produce, gourmet foods and specialty items from different parts of the world. Pop in for lunch, or bring the whole family and enjoy an ice-cream cone from Jose's while browsing the selection. (213-624-2378)

4 Hollywood Farmers' Market
During a tour of Los Angeles, explore the Hollywood Farmers' Market's booths, and be sure to be on the lookout for the celebrities who sometimes stroll down Ivar Street amid this festive street fair. Grab a cup of hot coffee and join the large crowds in sampling delicious ethnic foods and taking in great live music. In addition to fresh, California-grown produce, customers can purchase jewelry and clothes made by local artists. (323-463-3171)

3 The Original Farmers Market
The Original Farmers Market of Los Angeles opened in the summer of 1934 when a handful of produce farmers gathered on a vacant street corner to vend the season's crops. Today's market, easy to spot thanks to the famous clock tower that soars above it, has taken on a completely different persona and now offers more than 30 delicious restaurants as well as an impressive array of specialty shops and open-air food stalls.
