The Original Farmers Market in Hollywood

For over 84 years, The Original Farmers Market in Hollywood has been a local favorite.  Even their tagline is “Meet Me at Third and Fairfax.”  It’s at this intersection in 1934 that local farmers were invited to sell their goods off the back of trucks.  Soon after, merchants and grocers joined in, and opened permanent kiosks or stalls that acted as their restaurants and stores.

Since that time, it’s remained a must-visit for neighbors, celebrities, and of course travelers to our city.  Everyone has visited this corner including Frank Sinatra, President Dwight Eisenhower, Marilyn Monroe, Ava Gardner, Shirley Temple, and The Beatles. To this day, you can still see your favorite celebs.  In fact, there’s a handful of tables by Bob’s Coffee and Doughnuts where old-school directors, writers, actors, and other Hollywood royalty still get together every single morning.

Also, Friday Night Music happens every Friday between now and August 31st from 7-9PM.  Free concerts include Latin jazz, Brazilian, swing and world beat soul.  This music variety goes along great with the endless world-wide culinary experiences one can enjoy at The Original Farmers Market in Hollywood.

 

The market is a great location for anyone attending a taping of The Price is Right or Dancing With the Stars next door at CBS Studios Hollywood. Visitors can also walk a few more feet into the adjacent, The Grove LA, for even more shopping and dining opportunities.

These are two great side-by-side locations that Glitterati Tours usually recommends as a meeting location for guests driving into the city to start their private LA sightseeing tour.  It’s well centered with plenty of parking, and visitors can make it a full LA day!  Otherwise, we can start your tour from your local hotel, or anywhere in the general Hollywood or Beverly Hills area.  Slightly extended tours can also include pick ups directly from LAX Airport, DTLA, or the beach communities of Santa Monica and Venice.
