Korean Market in Los Angeles

The California Market Western and 5th Street Los Angeles, CA

This is one of my favorite Korean Markets in LA. It reminds me of the local markets when I was a kid before the mega grocers took over. The only difference is that everything is Korean. It’s a Korean Disneyland for cooks.

Even if you are not into Korean food, this is the place to go for good cheap vegetables. Korean mothers seem to place a premium on fresh vegetables and the store knows how to deliver. You can buy bags of fresh peeled garlic for less than the price of a few cloves at other groceries. Better yet, there are vendors selling fresh dumplings, soups, red bean buns and much more. When was the last time you had a good cheap lunch in the grocery store.
