    I like Hannam Chain on Olympic and Vermont for their seafood and banchan sections. When they have it, Dungeness crab goes for 4.99/lb! I like California Market for their produce and meat....

      Is California cheaper than Galleria? Galleria is closest to me, and I like that it's immaculately sparkly and clean on the inside, but I just feel like I'm paying a lot for what I'm getting.

        California Market is probably cheaper than Galleria. It is not totally immaculate on the inside, perhaps a bit worn, but they are so nice about handing out the samples. . . .Oh and don't forget the hot pancake thing on your way out!

        That said, I think California market is going away so they can put up a mini mall because as we residents know, K-town lacks enough mini malls.

          For most produce, I go to the Hollywood Farmer's market between Sunset and Hollywood.

          Worth every extra penny.

          i typically go to either HK or California, both are on Western a bit north of Wilshire.
