Original Farmers Market Update

Dear Friend of Farmers Market,

We are pleased to let you know that the Original Farmers Market is open and our family-owned businesses are ready to serve you. We want to thank you, our friends from near and far, for your support the past few days. Our sincere thanks to the community for lending a helping hand to clean up debris and graffiti and the first responders for keeping us safe.

We are also excited to announce that the Market’s dining tables and chairs are back and appropriately distanced for your safety. For a list of open restaurants, shops and grocers click here .

For those who prefer to shop from home, you can get a variety of grocery and prepared meals delivered through Mercato.com and other delivery platforms. Visit farmersmarketla.com/delivery for details. 


Thank you for your continued patronage of the Market and our locally-owned merchants. We are proud to be a community resource and gathering place for ALL, and look forward to serving you.

It's Always Magic Hour in LA



As they say, all good things must come to an end. The sun will set (pun intended) on our daily live feed from Hotel Erwin in Venice Beach on May 31, but don’t despair! The beaches are now open to runners, surfers and swimmers.

Hotel Erwin has stepped up to sweeten the deal. Enjoy 30% off rates for future bookings, or give the gift of vitamin D + Sea to someone who needs our beautiful sunsets IRL.

Experience the joy of aviation with the Flight Path Museum LAX as we take you on a docent-led virtual tour of this hidden gem located on the south side of the airfield at LAX.

Los Angeles Tourism and LAX have teamed up for a special virtual experience with Google Earth through the Flight Path Museum LAX, which boasts one of the largest collections of airline inflight uniforms & accessories, and countless aircraft models, posters and memorabilia.

The museum’s director, Agnes Huff (former flight attendant for PSA whose uniform may make a cameo) will be joined by other members of the Flight Path staff for a guided tour of aviation history and a healthy dose of travel inspo. Spoiler alert: tour will include a peep inside the museum’s DC-3.
