The Original Farmers Market
Where we've featured it
Open since 1934, The Original Farmers Market at 3rd and Fairfax is one of LA’s most recognizable landmarks, but if you write off this historic market as a mere tourist trap, you’re doing yourself a disservice. Sure, there will be plenty of out-of-towners wandering around taking photos of The Grove’s trolley, but the fact remains this place is stacked with tremendous vendors. From iconic stalls like Bennett’s Ice Cream, Bob’s Doughnuts, and Magee’s to specialty shops like Monsieur Marcel and Marconda’s Meats, The Original Farmers Market is a must-see destination whether it’s your first day here or you’ve lived in LA your entire life. Tip: Go right at 10am when it opens for zero crowds and the best produce. Open daily, 10am-6pm.
