You're probably read the other reviews so you know how the tour works. The LA Farmers' Market is really about prepared food vendors and not fresh food vendors. It was really fun to taste many different foods -- some of the places (for example Loteria...More

Sorry I meant to ask is it feasible to take children with you?

Response from Fechef | Reviewed this property |
yes it would be great for kids; but I would recommend that they be older than 6. While you are walking around the farmer's market there are opportunities to sit so it should be good for kids. Have fun!
Hello. I'm thinking of going on the east LA tour is it possible to take children with you?

The places you go on the tour are certainly good for children and they are welcome on the tour. You still have to pay full price for each unless they are under 5 yes old. It is a good experience for all.
