|the old fashioned gas station in front of the Original Farmers Market|
A few years ago, our family took a food tour of the Original Farmers Market in Los Angeles (to visit their website, click here)-it was a fabulous experience, and one we’ll never forget. Despite the 60-mile drive, we‘d return about once every 3 months.
The 80 year-old farmers market is located next to the Grove and comprised mostly of restaurants and specialty food shops (there’s even a store that sells only hot pepper sauces!). EVERYTHING we have eaten there is to-die-for! Some of our favorites include: Du-Par’s Pie Shop, Gill’s Old Fashioned Ice Cream Shop, Mr. Marcel Gourmet Market, Pampas Grill (Brazilian food), and Magee’s House of Nuts. When visiting, I always try to stop by Lustre, an artisanal jewelry shop with handcrafted, unique pieces-I almost always find something there to buy.
If you’re in or near Los Angeles, stop by Original Farmers Market for an unforgettable meal or just to browse!
