Eat Shop Play: where to go for the month of September

The Eat Shop Play campaign supports and promotes local businesses located in project areas impacted by construction of the Crenshaw/LAX Line, the Purple Line Extension and the Regional Connector. This month’s Eat Shop Play business spotlight proves that learning doesn’t always have to take place in the classroom! There are plenty of places to improve your mind and learn new skills all around town.


The very first Inglewood Farmers’ Market is set to launch this Thursday from 3 to 7 p.m. on Market Street between Manchester Boulevard and Nutwood Street. Go and get fresh produce, prepared and pre-packaged foods, handicrafts and locally made products! You’ll also be able to check out cooking demonstrations, nutrition education, 15-minute fitness mini-classes, raffles, and live entertainment. The market will be taking place on the third Thursday of each month, so if you miss this one, mark your calendar for the next. To get to the Inglewood Farmers’ Market, take Metro Bus 40, 111 or Rapid 740 to Inglewood Transit Center.

If you’re looking for something to do along Wilshire Boulevard, drop by Zimmer Children’s Museum! It’s a fun and interactive space that’s perfect for young kids to to play, imagine and explore. Plus, if you go Metro, you can save $2 on admission. To get to Zimmer, take Metro Bus 20 to Wilshire/San Vicente or Metro Bus 30/330 to San Vicente/Wilshire.


Finally, get the most out of Little Tokyo with Go Little Tokyo. Go Little Tokyo offers resources for self-guided neighborhood tours, calendar listings and a directory to help you fully explore one of Los Angeles’ iconic cultural hubs. Of course to get to Little Tokyo, you can hop on the LADOT DASH A bus or take the Metro Gold Line to Little Tokyo/Arts District Station.

  1. Important note: If you’re heading to Little Tokyo/Arts District on a weekend, the DASH A option shouldn’t be relied upon isn’t recommended as it has no weekend DASH services.

    LADOT DASH really needs to start weekend services on A, B, and D as Little Tokyo, Chinatown and Union Station can get quite busy as weekend destinations.
