The Original Farmers Market Food Tour added a nice blend of local history and savory eats. Our tour guide Andrew was knowledgeable and charismatic. We had a smaller group of 6 so made it intimate and more personable. The food stops hit a lot of the older and tastier food spots. We had a great morning and were quite full... More

We did the private tour with Andrew at The Farmer's Market at 9:30 on a Sunday morning. It was my husband, my best friend and myself. I had been there several times in the past with our children but it was always a little overwhelming. There are so many wonderful places under one roof. Andrew gave us a great history... More

My family and I had an excellent time with Andrew on the Melting Pot tour of the LA farmers market. Andrew shared lots of local history and stories about the various proprietors.

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our recent “Melting Pot Food Tour” of the old Farmer’s Market. Andrew, our tour guide, was knowledgeable, helpful and personable. He was obviously well trained. There were multiple, small delicious tastings along the way, which added up to a delicious meal spread out over 2 ½ hours.
