Grand Central Market

Always bustling, the packed Grand Central Market houses dozens of vendors under a 30,000-square-foot arcade. Mexican? Chinese? Jewish deli? It’s all here. Sample anything from fresh oysters to fresh-pressed juice, meet the butchers, green grocers, fishers and farmers, and get to know LA’s array of mouth-watering cuisines and cultures. Shop and peruse the stands; dine at the shared community tables. This downtown landmark on South Broadway has been around since 1917.
