Farmers Market: A Los Angeles Tradition
Located at the corner of Third and Fairfax, the Los Angeles Farmer’s Market is not only a historic site, but also a bustling social and commercial hub for natives and tourists alike. First opened in 1934, today’s market offers more than 100 vendors serving both prepared foods as well as local ingredients. In the early 1990s, the Market underwent a massive renovation to update the space and make room for vendors, and today it’s a destination for foodies who want to eat some of the best L.A. has to offer. Stop in for tacos at Loteria, a spectacular modern Mexican food stand that dishes up amazing flavors, and if you’re still hungry, a fresh donut from Bob’s Coffee & Donuts will satisfy your sweet tooth. If you’re cooking, you can find a wide variety of fresh fruits and vegetables from local growers, as well as amazing meats and sausage. A trolley shuttles between the Market and the nearby Grove shopping center.
