Iconic Los Angeles Landmark Features Fun for All Ages This Holiday Season
The Original Farmers Market at Third & Fairfax in Los Angeles—the city’s most festive location this time of the year—is celebrating the holidays in style this season with a variety of free, family-friendly activities that are sure to please patrons of all ages.
On Sunday, December 6, the Market will be celebrating Chanukah in grand fashion from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. on the Market Plaza with a variety of activities that include face painting, treats, arts and crafts and the construction of a giant LEGO® menorah. Then at 4:30, revelers can enjoy the magical stylings of Tom Ogden, twice-voted “Parlour Magician of the Year” by the world-famous Magic Castle in Hollywood. The special event will conclude at 5 p.m. with a ceremony illuminating both the LEGO and giant Farmers Market menorahs, in celebration of the first night of Chanukah.
Then, on Saturday, December 19, The Original Farmers Market will give a big “howdy” to the season with “A Farmers Market Country Christmas” celebration. Afternoon festivities on the Plaza will include the Podunk Poets’ Holiday Hoedown and ornament decorating; the evening’s program will be none other than EB’s downhome, annual Holiday Ranch Party.
The entertainment will carry on through Christmas Eve. From December 20 -24, the Farmers Market’s entertainment line-up will be as diverse as Los Angeles itself, with acts such as: the Dickensian Strolling Carolers, Susie Hansen Latin Jazz Band, Einstein Brown’s Calypso Christmas and Scott Land’s Holiday Marionette Show, to name just a few.

The Market is open until 6 p.m. on Christmas Eve for last-minute shoppers. Parking at the Farmers Market is free for two hours with a purchase and validation from any Market merchant.
