Travel Information on Los Angeles

The Grand Central Market has offered Los Angeles’ food lovers a feast of sights, tastes, and smells for generations. When it first opened in 1917, well-to-do Angelenos plunked down a penny to ride the Angels Flight Railway down to the best open-air shopping in town. And even today, there is no other marketplace in the city that captures the diversity of California's gastronomic and cultural cornucopia. 

Aisles and aisles of hand-picked fruits and vegetables, exotic herbs and spices, fragrant fresh-cut flowers, fish, poultry, confections and nuts, divide the interior of the meticulously restored Homer Laughlin Building. Food stalls serve up hard-to-resist delicacies and tasty treats: Cuban sandwiches, succulent fish tacos, towering ice-cream cones, and an array of other unimaginable delightsE all for the trying.
