Food scene in Los Angeles

Farmers Market
“Sitting south of West Hollywood is one of LA's most beloved landmarks: The Original Farmers Market. Founded in 1934, this cream-colored facility reels in both residents and tourists with the promise of fresh produce and the aroma of ready-to-eat snacks. You can visit throughout the week, although hours vary depending on the day. Entry is free, but you'll want to have some cash on hand should any of the treats whet your appetite. Complimentary parking (when a ticket is validated at the market) is also provided for up to 90 minutes of parking at the market's two lots. For a more contemporary shopping experience, head to The Grove. This massive commercial and entertainment complex sits adjacent to The Original Farmers Market. Here, you'll find a long list of your favorite shopping haunts, as well as a variety of dining venues, a movie theater and plenty of special events.”

“Amazing breakfast, brunch and lunch food. It can get very busy and a bit pricey but it's absolutely worth it. A sister-restaurant to the ever popular Gjelina, this place is more casual, mainly outside seating and overall delicious. A must visit.”

“Cool trendy spot in West Hollywood! Beautiful people, cool setting; Inside can get really loud, try to get an outside seating, you will love seating under the stars, lights, and trees. Best to order Lollipop Sprouts and mushroom pizza (share with friends)... so good!”
