The Original Farmers Market at Third and Fairfax is the perfect place to grab a bite to eat on your way through Los Angeles. First opened in 1934, the market features more than 100 restaurants, grocers, and shops, with more than 90 percent of the shops and stalls independently owned and operated. Whether you're in the mood for Chinese or Middle Eastern or French food, they have it. A burger, fries, and a thick shake? Look no further than the market. The Market was first opened in the 1930s as a gathering place for local farmers to park their trucks and sell fresh produce to local shoppers, but in the past eight decades the market has transformed into a world-class, open-air destination for locals and tourists. Be sure to check out Du-Par's Restaurant, a family affair that opened its doors more than 70 years ago. Du-Par's pies are legendary, and before the Thanksgiving holiday the restaurant typically makes thousands to-go. Nearby is Magee's House of Nuts, credited with inventing roasted mixed nuts; today, Magee's grinds and sells about 100,000 pounds of fresh peanut butter every year. To satisfy your sweet tooth, be sure to visit world-famous (and very tasty) Bob's Coffee & Doughnuts and Bennett's Ice Cream.
