Grand Central Market serves a wide variety of foods that are representative of the LA food scene. Standouts include papusas at Sarita’s.

A little pricey but there are so many great food options. I even saw a stand that sells different types of PB&J's! Would make the stop if you are in Downtown!

Go hungry! Lots of artisanal local food stalls. You won’t find any chain restaurants here. I just love the aesthetic of this market. Beautiful colorful counters, food displays and neon signs.

This is such a historical place but many of the business here are brand new. Making their own headlines and features on different TV shows and culinary reports. Recently seeing La Tostaderia on the show Diners, Drive-Ins, & Dives.

A variety of food stalls at a variety of price points. Recommend doing a walk through before you purchase or else you may run out of room to eat

before there were food halls all over the OC. We had Grand Central Market here in LA. The plave has been around forever it's the first real good hall. I remember my great grandma bringing me here as a kid. There are so many food options even entertainment in the summer and Mc Connels for dessert is a must. If you haven't been you just have to its a must!

It's hard to find a great market in the USA, but this place is definitely a great one. With many great local options, this is a must-do if you are in downtown.

Not as big as some of the other well known food markets we've been to around the country, but still good, and very busy, even on a Sunday. There are lots of food booths here, plus places to get a variety of other things as well, such as peppers and spices, candy, produce, etc.

Gets busy on weekends but a great place to grab lunch and hang out in downtown if you're in the area. There are mini markets for fruits and veggies and coffee shops, green juice and places that serve alcohol. Long lines pretty much at every eatery but there is something for everyone's taste buds and cravings. 2 entrances so easy to find the market.

It's a secret no more: Grand Central Market is to L.A. as Chelsea Market is to New York. Originally a market for produce and meat, GCM is now a full-fledged foodie paradise (with long lines to match, sigh). But if you happen to be in Downtown L.A., you really should stop by, as there are many great food stalls like Eggslut, Wexler's Deli and Madcapra.

Worth checking out although parking is a pain in the butt.

There are a ton of food vendors, carriers of fresh fruits, and unique tables set up selling all sorts of stuff. It's located in a large warehouse type building and is right across the street from the bench featured in 500 Days of Summer.
