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.

Smorgasburg LA

Just opened this summer, Smorgasburg LA, has already established itself as a downtown staple. This weekly Sunday marketplace offers tantalizing eats and shopping all under the open air, sunny skies. Munch on a variety of eclectic eats while you’re there, from giant mozzarella sticks from Big Mozz to the Instagram ready fruit-filled acai bowls at Amazebowls. Take home a fresh-baked loaf from Bub and Grandma’s Bread and a Rucker’s Pie for tonight’s dessert.

Kids Will Love: Donut lovers won’t want to miss Donut Friend’s stall. Pick up a sampler pack of mini donuts to share. If it’s a hot day, cool down with Little Spoon Frozen Pudding.
