    The Grove At Farmer's Market

    The Grove, a plaza in W. Los Angeles

    Here's yet another beautiful, trendy outdoor plaza in the Euro style. The Grove is just so pretty but oh so crowded. Well, if you want to do the typical tourist thing or to be seen, come here. It is perhaps the ultimate meeting place on the westside. It is almost always crowded during any part of the day, save Christmas Day perhaps?

    Unique Suggestions: The shops here are very commercial. If you want a more unique shopping experience, explore a few streets away on Melrose , 3rd or Fairfax Ave.

    Pricey shopping destination..Anthropologie, Nike Goddess, Pottery Barn, Gap..followed by pricey restaurants and movie house.

    If you want shopping, go to Beverly Center or any mall in Socal...for more unique and funky shopping, go to Melrose Ave. And movies??? Great movie house but pricey for my standards. I only went there to catch a screening of a movie that wasn't playing in local theatres.

    Website for The Grove

    Unique Suggestions: The originals Farmers Market is attached to the Grove...popular with tourists and locals. Go there for the food. My faves are the cajun spots and the crepe stand. Yum! I like perusing the stands at Farmers market...great fruit, and other miscellaneous items for purchase.

    Fun Alternatives: The Grove is pretty small and you can spend an afternoon there, if you don't hit up Farmers Market. My suggestion...go to Hollywood & Highland if you want the glitz and glamor. It definitely has more options and alternatives due to it's location.

    If you're at the Grove to shop...other places to go are: Beverly Center, Melrose Av, South Coast Plaza (OC), Glendale Galleria, Third Street (Santa Monica) and a new hot, hip spot, Silverlake / Los Feliz (for vintage/trendy/unique stores).
