Grand Central Market is loud, colorful and lively. It's gone through a transition in the last 10 years along with the rest of downtown L.A., becoming a more polished arena of sleek neon signs and trendy eateries. While I truly enjoy the new experience, part of me really misses the taquerias and fruit stands that once populated this massive warehouse. There are still a couple scattered in between all the newness, but with changes occurring so rapidly in this area of town I'm not sure how long they'll last.
If you're coming to visit L.A., start here for breakfast or lunch and then wander around to many sights surrounding it.
