Grand Central Market
You’re more likely to watch your waistline than your pennies (or dollars) at this place. But with its view over the Angels Flight railway and the office towers of Bunker Hill it makes for a nice, quick foodie fix.
Bustling with culinary commotion since 1917, LA’s oldest and largest open-air market is filled to the brim with a worldwide selection of fruit and veg’, herbs and spices, candles, nuts, flowers and more.
Sat on the ground floor of the stately Homer Laughlin Building – the centerpiece of LA’s Historic Core District – it’s a prime example of ancient Algeleno architecture too. And worth coming just to sit with an ice cream cone or a burrito and take in the sites, sounds and smells.
