Fun and informative tour of the Farmer's Market. Our group of four sampled goodies from various vendors and enjoyed the fascinating history of the market, as told by our engaging guide, Andrew. Bring your appetite as these "tastes" quickly add up to a meal.

Sorry I meant to ask is it feasible to take children with you?

Response from Fechef | Reviewed this property |
yes it would be great for kids; but I would recommend that they be older than 6. While you are walking around the farmer's market there are opportunities to sit so it should be good for kids. Have fun!
Hello. I'm thinking of going on the east LA tour is it possible to take children with you?

The places you go on the tour are certainly good for children and they are welcome on the tour. You still have to pay full price for each unless they are under 5 yes old. It is a good experience for all.
