Grand Central Market Reviews
No trip to LA is complete without a visit to this historic, well respected food market. We spend the day in and around Pershing Square and decided to head here for lunch. We arrived at around... more »
Well we were not that amazed by the place as it was described. Though it was one of the best attraction in LA but we feel like it was little overrated. First of all there is no free parking spot... more »
This is a great place to visit, especially for lunch. It's generally very busy, but the range of food options is quite varied. Pricing can be from expensive to affordable, you just have to have a wander around and have a look. Pretty Central to a few nice downtown attractions so you can easily spend a few hours in and around the market. (Cool Hill trolley across the road) Some steps, which make getting a stroller or wheelchair around interesting, but there are ramps, you just have to go the long way around sometimes. It's worth coming into the city at least once to have a look.
Lots of delicious food choices. Super packed with people, so hold on tight to your kids if you bring them. Places to sit inside and outside. When we went, it was easier to go sit outside (felt better out there anyways). Prices were around $10 and above. Look on the website for more details on vendors.
