Discover Los Angeles

For generations of Angelenos and visitors, "Meet Me at Third and Fairfax" could only mean one thing: see you at The Original Farmers Market. Opened in 1934, the landmark open-air marketplace has welcomed everyone from President Eisenhower to The Beatles, Frank Sinatra and Marilyn Monroe. A star in its own right, the Market has appeared numerous times on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Entourage, and cooking shows with Alton Brown and Gordon Ramsay.

While there are familiar brands like Starbucks and Cost Plus, the Market's true appeal is in the dozens of food stalls and specialty shops. Many of these small businesses have been family owned and operated at the Market for decades. Day or night, there's something for everyone: Bob's Coffee & Doughnuts or Du-par's to start the day; unique shops like Kip's Toyland, Light My Fire and The Dog Bakery; multicultural eateries like Pampas Grill and Singapore's Banana Leaf.

Sausage is a time-tested tradition that takes off-cuts of meat and transforms them with spices and seasoning into encased flavor bombs. Oktoberfest first started in 1810 in Munich and has since become a hotbed for communal beer and sausage consumption. That legacy continues locally at places like Torrance’s Alpine Village. Thankfully, people don’t need to rely on that raucous stretch of time in September and October to get sausage drunk. Sausage traditions also extend far beyond Bavaria, around the globe.
