Planning a trip to the Los Angeles Farmers Market? Here’s some tips and ideas to enjoy a wonderful culinary experience at the Farmers Market!
The Los Angeles Farmers Market is located on 3rd Street and Fairfax Avenue and contains over 100 stores. The market opened in 1943. It actually started as a parking place with trucks, where farmers used to rent the parking spots and sell fresh food products. Today the market is packed with food stalls and restaurants, that serve food from many cultural backgrounds. The immigrant community offers many delicious and ethnic dishes, as well as many traditional American recipes. You can enjoy them all at the Farmers Market!
