Grand Central Market: "Quick Bites at Grand Central" Grand Central Market Tip by gilescorey
Grand Central Market, Los Angeles: 2 reviews and 2 photos
You could rack Grand Central Market, just as easily, under "Local Customs" or "Off the Beaten Path".
City boosters would love to have Grand Central Market be a tourist's "must see", but, conversely, it plays host to throngs of locals - Latino day shoppers on Broadway, and Downtown politicos, alike.
The Market is a quieter version of Barcelona's "La Boqueria", but is remarkably similar. Produce stands and butchers stand side by side along sawdust strewn aisles, while nearby stools beckon casual diners to the counter. There's Mexican food(naturally), as well as sushi and burger stands.
This 85 yr. old landmark certainly is fun, and a logical pit stop for lunch on a Downtown visit. And, what's best? With the influx of Downtown residents of the loft boom, the market grows busier and more relevant each and every day.
Favorite Dish: Cop a squat at any food counter and enjoy.
