Discover Los Angeles

For generations of Angelenos and visitors, "Meet Me at Third and Fairfax" could only mean one thing: see you at The Original Farmers Market. Opened in 1934, the landmark open-air marketplace has welcomed everyone from President Eisenhower to The Beatles, Frank Sinatra and Marilyn Monroe. A star in its own right, the Market has appeared numerous times on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Entourage, and cooking shows with Alton Brown and Gordon Ramsay.

While there are familiar brands like Starbucks and Cost Plus, the Market's true appeal is in the dozens of food stalls and specialty shops. Many of these small businesses have been family owned and operated at the Market for decades. Day or night, there's something for everyone: Bob's Coffee & Doughnuts or Du-par's to start the day; unique shops like Kip's Toyland, Light My Fire and The Dog Bakery; multicultural eateries like Pampas Grill and Singapore's Banana Leaf.
