Discover Los Angeles
For generations of Angelenos and visitors, "Meet Me at Third and Fairfax" could only mean one thing: see you at The Original Farmers Market. Opened in 1934, the landmark open-air marketplace has welcomed everyone from President Eisenhower to The Beatles, Frank Sinatra and Marilyn Monroe. A star in its own right, the Market has appeared numerous times on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Entourage, and cooking shows with Alton Brown and Gordon Ramsay.
While there are familiar brands like Starbucks and Cost Plus, the Market's true appeal is in the dozens of food stalls and specialty shops. Many of these small businesses have been family owned and operated at the Market for decades. Day or night, there's something for everyone: Bob's Coffee & Doughnuts or Du-par's to start the day; unique shops like Kip's Toyland, Light My Fire and The Dog Bakery; multicultural eateries like Pampas Grill and Singapore's Banana Leaf.
The world’s busiest motion picture and television studio can double as your own private event venue. Picture this, your group surrounded by the hustle and bustle of a working studio. With three screening rooms, 13 historic backlot sets, a fine dining room, museums and a premier theater, they have the capacity for an intimate retreat for 20 guests or an extravaganza for 3,000.
We sat down with Kathryn Schloessman, President of the Los Angeles Sports & Entertainment Commission, to discuss why Los Angeles is a premiere destination for all things sports!

Los Angeles is quickly becoming a major league city, thanks in part to the recent additions of new sports teams and new state-of-the-art stadiums. Earlier this spring, the Los Angeles Football Club, Major League Soccer’s newest expansion team, became the third professional sports team in as many years to kick off their inaugural season in Los Angeles and the first to have a brand new stadium to call home.
