The Original Farmers Market

Back in 1934, local farmers began selling produce at the corner of 3rd and Fairfax, a corner that has come to be known as the Original Farmers Market and a prime Grove-adjacent dining hall. A handful of stalls still sell groceries, but they're outnumbered by catering stands offering a culinary round-the-world trip. Alongside the American comfort food served at the historic, 24-hour Du-Par's restaurant, you can get everything from Texas barbecue (Bryan's Pit BBQ) to Parisian crêpes (French Crepe Company), New Orleans po'boys (The Gumbo Pot) to sunny Mexican fare (Loteria Grill). For dessert, you can't beat Bennett's Ice Cream. Make sure to stop by Light My Fire, a shop packed with hundreds of different hot sauces.

For those looking to grab an affordable bite before/after a movie or shopping trip at the Grove, I'm a big fan of stopping by the Farmer's Market. Although it is often busy and somewhat hectic, they have countless options to choose from and something for everyone in your group - BBQ, ice cream, french food, empenadas, and much more. For the most part, you can get a tasty lunch or dinner for a very reasonable price at most of the stalls. A lot of these spots have been here for years too, so if you're excited about supporting some hardworking local vendors, this will be up your alley as well. 


Not only can you purchase some fresh stuff from this farmers market, but it's a cool place to hang out. Grab a drink at the bar or frozen yogurt from Pinkberry and just roam the area!
