|About these ratings|
Sitting south of West Hollywood is one of L.A.'s most beloved landmarks: the Farmers Market. Founded in 1934, this cream-colored facility reels in both residents and tourists with a variety of fresh produce and the aroma of ready-to-eat snacks. Today, the Farmers Market remains true to its historic identity, offering a bustling atmosphere with mouth-watering food items. Plus, those who visit will be in good company: Supposedly, Walt Disney designed Disneyland here, and James Dean enjoyed breakfast here before his fatal car crash. You can visit throughout the week, although hours vary depending on the day. For more information, check out the market's website.
For a more contemporary shopping experience, head to The Grove. This massive commercial and entertainment complex sits adjacent to the Farmers Market. Here, you'll find a long list of your favorite shopping haunts, including Abercrombie & Fitch, Banana Republic, Lucky Brand Jeans, and Tommy Bahama, as well as a variety of dining venues, a movie theater, and plenty of special events. The Grove opens its doors every day at 10 a.m. and stays open until between 8 and 10 p.m., depending on the day. For more information, check out The Grove's website.
