When we visit our family in Los Angeles, I also like to cook something delicious for all of us. Mostly we buy then in supermarkets like the Ralphs or in the Sam's club our food. In Germany, we like to visit markets and buy salad, fruit, vegetables and fresh meat from the region. Los Angeles gehen wollen. I told my daughter-in-law on the last visit and she asked if we would like to go to the Farmers Market Los Angeles. She said that was a sight in the heart of Los Angeles that you should definitely see.
We got the address, entered it in our sat-nav and started driving to the market.
Where can I find the Farmers Market Los Angeles?
In the middle of West Hollywood between Hollywood and Beverly Hills lies this unusual market.
6333 W 3rd St, Los Angeles, CA 90036, US
From afar we saw a white tower with a clock on which stood Farmers Market. Although there was a huge parking lot but we wanted to save the money and parked at the supermarket across the street. Right on the tower is a Starbucks, which is closer than I get a Frappuccino before you go.
A cozy spot in the heart of Los Angeles!
When you enter this market , a small fascinating world turns out to be. We were very surprised, we had never thought that there is such a quiet place in this turbulent metropolis.
The many food stalls are very inviting, there are dishes of various nations offered. From Italian, Lebanese, American, sweet or sour, fish or meat to vegetarian. An incredible variety of dishes are offered. You just sit down where you like it and eat in the open air, there is a great, relaxed atmosphere.
The trend towards freshness is also an issue in LA and is becoming visible in this market.
Farmers from the surrounding area offer a wide variety of all kinds of fresh local produce. We were overwhelmed by the many fruit and vegetable stalls with their rich offer of regional goods. I have rarely seen such fresh fruits as apples, orange bananas and melons. Vegetables such as potatoes, tomatoes, salads and carrots make every vegetarian's heart beat faster.
The meat and sausage offer leaves nothing to be desired!
The selection is truly amazing, with traditional roasts, steaks, chops, minced meat and much more. From lamb, beef, pork to chicken, turkey and turkey and exotic birds, everything is fresh here. Everything is perfectly prepared and presented very appetizing in the counters. Also tips to prepare you get on request.
A paradise for all sweet-toothed cats!
Americans love everything that is sweet, that's well known, so of course you should not miss the candy stands here. A real land of milk and honey opens up here that does not only make children's eyes shine. The stalls and sweets are colorful and from classics to new favorites you can really buy everything imaginable in all shapes and colors and on any occasion.
Have you ever seen such huge love apples in so many variations?
The Grove, open-air mall at Farmers Market Los Angeles!
The Farmers Market Los Angeles is a mix between the market and the mall, with the pedestrian mall adjacent to The Grove. You can walk or ride a classic tram from Farmers Market, which is a great change.
In the middle of the market are idyllic water features and fountains. There you can sit down, take a little break and watch the happy goings on.
Everything your heart desires!
Here you will find luxury brands such as Michael Kors, Diane von Furstenberg, La Piazza, Barnes and Nobles and many more. If you feel like you can even go to the cinema, that is there, of course.
We made our way back, because it took quite a few hours to see all this and we wanted to go shopping at the Farmers Market. In between, we stopped at one of the highlights of the market, an ancient gas station, which one would not suspect here. It is of course no longer in operation but a great photo opportunity.
We were during our stay several times in Farmer Market Los Angeles. Of course to buy fresh goods but also to visit some restaurants there. There are many well known restaurants where we like to eat, such as the Cheescake Factory or the Wood Ranch.
Also on our next visit we will go shopping there regularly, because fresh, regional food is very important to us.
