The Original Farmers Market: a gourmet getaway

food lover's outing

Everybody in Los Angeles goes to 3rd Street and Fairfax Avenue for the trendiest food.

See, feel, touch, and taste food in this airy bustling outdoor market. As far as the eye can see, fragrant food stalls and colourful pyramids of fruits and vegetables produced by small local farmers crowd one's vision.

Everyone comes here, from Texans to Australians to New Yorkers, attracted by the market's reputation and its global smorgasbord. Various artisans, bakers, and old Yiddish butchers sell alongside food trucks. Eat right there or order takeaway.

There's the famous Light My Fire, which specialises in spicy sauces, a peanut-butter maker, even a dog bakery… Depending on the day, orchestras enliven the market, which does not close its doors before 9:30 p.m. making it a great place to have dinner.
