There’s Always Time for the Farmers Market
A Special Private Tour Rendezvous Location
We often arrange for a private Los Angeles tour with guests driving into Los Angeles so we like to have rendezvous destinations in mind that suit their needs. Our most frequently requested meeting spot is at the Farmers Market and Grove. Easy to find, central location for most of our tour routes, lots of parking and, well, all the attractions and fun offered by this gigantic shopping, eating and entertainment complex so close to Hollywood and Beverly Hills. While we don’t utter the age old refrain “Meet me at Third and Fairfax” to our visitors we do say look for the tall Farmers Market clock tower, a familiar sight to Los Angelenos since 1948. If we meet at the clock tower then the tour can begin in the historic market where snacks and souvenirs are available as well as the sight of Price is Right contestants (from CBS Television City next door to the market) with their funny hats and signs. The sweet smells of fresh produce is so enticing as well as the wafting aromas from the many foodstands. Summer means free live music Thursdays through Saturdays at the market and makes this a perfect place to say goodbye to our guests after a tour that finishes late in the afternoon or early in the evening.
