When I'm craving some Creole cuisine in Los Angeles, I head over to Third and Fairfax to The Gumbo Pot at L.A.'s Original Farmers Market. On a warm sunny SoCal day, it's the perfect destination to sit outdoors while grabbing a taste of the Big Easy. With the Farmers' Market conveniently located adjacent to the Grove Shopping Center, it's the perfect spot to grab a casual bite and then some, while later working off the calories with a stroll through the outdoor mall.

Seafood Gumbo -  make the perfect accompaniment

The Gumbo Pot is located on the west patio of the Farmers' Market and serves affordable Cajun cuisine just like you'd find in New Orleans. I especially love their po' boys and seafood gumbo, but they offer just the right meal for all appetites and dietary restrictions with a number of salads, Southern style seafood dishes, and tasty side dishes and appetizers on their menu. Some sides/appetizers include fresh boiled crawfish, sweet potato chips, and corn bread with cheddar cheese and chiles.

Next time you are in the Los Angeles area and craving some Creole flavors from Nola, visit The Gumbo Pot at L.A.'s Original Farmers Market. You can even top off your meal with some beignets (french donuts) and chicory coffee.

    Great write up on the gumbo pot. I always stop there when I go to the farmers mkt, and love the jambalaya and corn bread.

    Definitely a great place to have lunch or even dinner. The music on Thursdays is amazing and the breakfast on Sundays is delish! I love fried catfish po’boys and I never forget to have a side of Jambalaya of Sweet Potato Chips.
