“This is a pretty cool spot- I have to say, it's one of my favorite spots to shop and eat and see movies. Just unique and charming. Also right next to Farmers Market, which is nothing like a real Farmers Market- it's all shops and places to eat. But is a cool old part of LA history.”

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.”
