Explore LA's Original Farmers Market, a landmark unlike any other in southern California, on an entertaining, informative tour.

Artisan butchers, bakers and candymakers, a gourmet grocery emporium with one of L.A.'s finest cheese counters, an international spice merchant endorsed by Oprah Winfrey, local celebrity chefs, and more.

Get the insider's perspective and understand why locals consider this the best restaurant and grocery store in town! You will be introduced to the Market's fascinating history, hear stories of the legacy families who have been part of this landmark location since its beginnings in 1934, and taste signature items from a variety of Farmers Market stalls which may include:
Ethnic eateries (French, Brazilian, Cajun, Middle Eastern or Spanish)
Gourmet grocery store
Fresh produce stand
Donut shop rated one of the best in the county by USA Today
Handmade candy kitchen
L.A.’s first pizzeria
Mexican grill featured in Bon Appetit magazine

The food samples along the way are filling enough for most people that a meal afterwards is not necessary.
