I am fortunate to live within walking distance of LA's best place to meet people and have lots to do. Many place to have coffee or a smoothie. Outstanding choice of prepared foods--deli, Thai, Chinese, Japanese, Greek, Kosher, Mexican, Cajun, Johnny Rockets, etc. There are candy places, nut stands, and of course terrific fresh produce at excellent prices. Also, a couple of magazine stands, a toy store, Bath and Body Works, Sur la Table, Cost Plus World Market, etc. There are many places to sit inside or outside. In addition to this, of course, it adjoins the Grove, a terrific and popular outdoor mall with shops, restaurants, a large Barnes and Noble, and a multiplex cinema. The best thing about the market, though, is the good selection and quality of different regional prepared foods. I am especially a fan of the corned beef at Magee's deli. It's one of only two place in LA that I've ever found that approach the joy of a real NY corned beef sandwich. Hand sliced so it's thick and juicy--it's a great sandwich. Also, you can have a meal at any of these Farmer's Market places without breaking the bank. Enjoy!
