market opened at the corner of 3rd and Fairfax in 1934 and retains much
of its original flavor -- the freshest produce, made-to-order peanut butter,
gourmet meats and cheeses -- while adding a few modern touches (Brazilian
barbecue, Cajun chicken, sushi) as well as retaining old favorites such
as corned beef and hot donuts. The Grove, an outdoor shopping plaza just
next door expands the market experience with a free trolley ride and dancing
water shows every half hour in the central pond.
