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.

The Original Farmers Market

From a breakfast of Bob’s Coffee and Donuts to a dinner of street dogs, and Bennett's ice cream for dessert, you could spend an entire day's worth of meals here and take home enough to fill dinner plates for the week. Grab one of the iconic bright green wooden grocery carts and get to work loading it up with fresh produce, nuts, and even a handful of stickers as you stroll these famous aisles deciding what to eat for lunch.

Kids Will Love: No visit to the Original Farmers Market would be complete without taking home a bag filled with sweet treats from the Magic Nut and Candy Company. Don’t miss Magee’s House of Nuts, where kids will be mesmerized by the machines swirling smooth, fresh nut butters. Take some home for an otherworldly fresh PBJ in ‪tomorrow’s lunchbox.
