Two alternative street markets where you can make discoveries and, above all, do your shopping.
A street market.
One of the most popular open-air trading areas in the vicinity of Los Angeles is the Rose Bowl Flea Market (www.rgcshows.com/RoseBowl.aspx), in the area of Pasadena. It is a market with a very long history, which began almost half a century ago and where you can find practically all kinds of products. It opens in the morning on the second Sunday of every month and is made up of more than 2,500 traders, who set up their stalls in the car park of the Rose Bowl Stadium, located at 1001 Rose Bowl Drive. More than 20,000 shoppers pass by every month in search of food, but also works of art, craft items and antiques. On Olvera Street, in the heart of Pueblo de Los Angeles, there is another small open-air market every morning, which is especially recommended for those interested in buying typical Mexican craft items.
