On October 27, 1917 Grand Central Market opened its doors and has been in continuous operation ever since. During the early years, the Broadway corridor was known as the entertainment and retail destination of L.A. Riding down Angels Flight, the funicular railway, L.A. residents would shop for groceries at the open-air Market.
Nowadays, the Market continues to celebrate the food and culture of Los Angeles, all the while upholding the rich history of the downtown landmark and supporting nearly forty local food businesses. Though the Market has evolved over time, the sense of community remains a constant.
