LAX Airport on Verge of Opening Its Own Farmers' Market

LAX just might become a must-stop spot for foodies. First, Top Chef Masters alum Ludo Lefebvre is in the running to open an upscale chicken shack at the airport. And now, an outpost of the popular Original Farmers Market may set up stalls in Terminal 5.

Yep, you might be able to shop at a farmers' market in the airport. If the bid goes through, the Original Farmers Market at LAX will give a new spin to the traditional airport food court as well as provide some much-needed healthy, fresh noshing options.

A spin-off of 77-year-old Los Angeles tourist attraction at Third and Fairfax, the LAX market will sell vegetables, fruit, snacks and drinks from some of its mother market’s longtime merchants, including Russian sweets, breads and rolls from T & Y Bakery; fresh pecans, walnuts, macadamia nuts and peanut butter from Magee's House of Nuts; and every hot sauce you can imagine from purveyor Light My Fire. The market also has several eateries on the lineup, including ¡Lotería! Grill's light Mexican fare, Monsieur Marcel's French bistro cuisine and a Market coffee bar.

The idea behind this is to replicate the City of Angeles cultural experience in the airport. We'd be happy just to have some fresh food and the chance to do some shopping while we wait for our flight.
