Shop yourself. Choose what you want. Skip the payment.
At The Free Market, we're passionate about providing quality groceries in a farmer's market layout, so you're able to choose the food you want to eat. We are very similar to a standard grocery market...except when you shop at our market there is no checkout stand. Everything is free of charge, we just ask that you and wear a mask. There is a line to get in, so please be prepared to wait between 30 minutes & 1.5 hours, depending on when you come. If you arrive early, you'll get more choices but the wait will be longer. The line opens at 3pm, and we hand out special numbered tickets to make the process fair.
Our food comes from major grocery stores and high end markets across Los Angeles. We have relationships with these stores and they donate food a few days before expiration, which we pick up and provide free of charge to anyone in need of food. We transport the food in a fully refrigerated truck.
