Los Angeles Sights

Grand Central Market

Updated 03/31/2014

Fodor's Review

Handmade white-corn tamales, warm olive bread, dried figs, Mexican fruit drinks. Hungry yet? This mouthwatering gathering place is the city's largest and most active food market. The market, which was treated to a makeover in 2013, and is now the home to various artisanal food vendors. The spot bustles nonstop with locals and visitors surveying the butcher shop's display of everything from lambs' heads to pigs' tails. Produce stalls are piled high with locally grown avocados

and heirloom tomatoes. Stop by Del Rey, at stall A7, for a remarkable selection of rare chilies and spices or Sticky Rice, at stall C-4-5, for a fantastic Thai-style chicken. Even if you don't plan on buying anything, the market is a great place to browse and people-watch.

Don't bother

We were hungry & hoping to find lots of fresh food choices here. Unfortunately this has become mostly an assortment of small Hispanic-oriented fast food places, with menus in Spanish. One featured fish, another Chinese entrees, but there was almost no real market--one table had fruit, another candy.
