The Original Farmers Market: The Original “Staycation” AdventureBrought to you by The Original Farmers Market
Inevitably, most parents will find themselves at a loss searching for a Summer activity that both children and adults can agree upon. While the notion of an exotic family getaway to a faraway destination may sound fantastic, it’s often not realistic, practical nor affordable—especially
during the busy Summer travel season. Which is why more and more families. are opting for “staycations,” enjoying affordable day trips within a short drive from home.
For nearly 85 years, The Original Farmers Market at Third & Fairfax has provided the ultimate destination for families year-round. This bustling open-air marketplace is largely unchanged since its humble beginnings, yet it still offers something which generation after generation continues to embrace. This walk-friendly bazaar encompasses an entire city block and hosts over 100 artisan grocers, restaurants, specialty food and gift merchants—many of which are family-owned and operated. Visitors can enjoy an exotic meal, grab a delicious snack or find a fun keepsake all within steps of each other. Parents can even pick up their groceries here to take home. (Talk about a fun twist on family grocery shopping!)
The Original Farmers Market remains one of Los Angeles’ last living time capsules: Part museum, part culinary play. ground and part lively theme park—all wrapped up in a delightful maze of adventure and discovery. As times change, it provides reassuring testament to the old saying: “the more things change, the more they stay the same.”
