Whether it’s a weekend run to get your shopping and brunch on, or a weekday stop on your lunch hour, we checked out 6 of the best Farmers Markets in Downtown LA. Read on, and let us know where we’ll see you at!
Head on out to 5th and Broadway every Sunday for the Historic Downtown Farmer’s Market of LA. Whistling distance from Fig at 7th, this DTLA Farmers Market offers an incredible array of everything you expect at your Farmers Market (farm fresh eggs, flowers, organic produce) to more exotic, “Gotta love LA” pickings including pupusas, barbecue, and curry dishes, as well as the opportunity to have your cake and eat it, too since you can find brunch and breakfast options, too. Shop for your meal planning for the forthcoming week, and let’s do Sunday brunch at the Downtown Farmers Market, too!
After that weekend brunch at DTLA Farmers Market, how’s about getting your fashion shopping in along with grabbing the goods for your dinner and morning smoothie? At nearby Silverlake Farmers Market (every Tuesday 2pm-730p and Saturdays at 8am to 2pm), they boast your produce, nuts, honey and health foods, but, also vintage clothing, jewelry and shoes!
On Wednesdays, we go to the Pershing Square Farmers Market! This popular Downtown Los Angeles destination gets flocks of locals each week as their plaza becomes the hot spot for all of your grocery needs; perfect for a walk from Seven West! “For only $5,” says a happy Yelp-er, “I was able to get 2 pupusas which came with a small bag of vegetables and red sauce. I topped off my meal with a $4 blueberry pomegranate drink!” Psst, they are not kidding. The puposas are that good.
We first headed to the Fig at 7th Farmers Market that goes down each Thursday here in DTLA when we heard Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream is one of their vendors. Then, we discovered just how awesome and versatile Fig at 7th’s fair is each week. From Swedish meat balls to stuffed grape leaves, this Downtown LA Farmers market is another fantastic option for walking to from Seven West, or on your lunch break.
While it can get crowded, we still love the Bank of America Farmers Market on Hope Street. Each Friday, they set up shop in their promenade, which makes it a great option to grab some lunch and enjoy under the trees on a sunshine day. Writes a Yelp reviewer, “Personally one of the best Farmers Market in downtown LA. There’s definitely a good abundance of options for food, treats, and shopping. Prices are not bad either as you get really fresh made stuff and locally harvested items. One of their vendors the BBQ chicken is always packed with tons of people with a huge line. However for the most part it does move fairly well!”
Rain or shine every Saturday, the Baldwin Hills-Crenshaw Farmers Market always draws a crowd, and is a fantastic start to your Saturday. “First time at this Farmers Market and I am in love!” writes a happy customer on Yelp. One of the most popular vendors here is Ari’s Natural Foods, word is their Pumpkin yogurt is excellent! Another perk? Ample parking. So, bring your car, and your appetite.
