The Original Farmers Market is one of Los Angeles’ most beloved landmarks and offers a memorable shopping and dining experience to visitors. Men from Illinois came here to park their trucks and sell fresh produce to locals when the Great Depression hit America, wherein began the rapidly growing legacy of this area. Today it is a hub of shopping for seasonal fruits, vegetables, fresh meat and seafood.
The bustling market has over a 100 specialty stores and produce stands, covered to protect against bad weather. While most of the stores have large interiors and vast collections, street carts are equally popular and well-stocked offering a major advantage to haggle. The Original Farmers Market is also a child’s wonderland. Kid’s Toyland is a favorite store selling stuffed animals, Adams prank snapping gum and Mad Libs. Unique in contrast to the rest of the city, Sticker Planet lives up to its name with rows of stickers of just about anything. Restaurants and cafes flank the market area, starting from the iconic clock tower bearing the market’s name. You can enjoy delicious cuisines, snacks and drinks here, some of the most creative culinary ingredients being Blair’s Sweet Death Sauce, Scorpion’s Sting Sauce, pancakes and corned beef.
