Food halls are quickly sweeping the city and it’s easy to see why—they allow you to outwit LA traffic and get your errands done all while you eat dinner. We rounded up the city’s very best one-stop shops to grab a bite with kids and take something home for later.

Grand Central Market

The grandaddy of LA’s food halls makes just about every must-visit list for good reason: it’s got everything to tempt tastebuds of all shapes and sizes. In just one stop you can feed your mini eaters lunch and take home groceries to fill the fridge for the week. From hot spots, like Horse Thief BBQ, Egg Slut & Wexler's Deli, to market classics, like tacos from Roast To Go, there is an edible option no matter how picky your crew is. Bring along your grocery totes and load them up with fresh, organic produce at the District Market, and bring home a porterhouse to grill for dinner from Belcampo's.

Kids Will Love: The wood-fired individual sized pizzas at Olio are perfect for small appetites. Just make sure you save room for dessert since you’ll all be screaming for a scoop of McConnell’s Fine Ice Cream.
