Go Metro to the second annual L.A. Times Food Bowl this May

The L.A. Times Food Bowl brings together L.A.’s best cafes, hotels, markets, restaurants and the world’s top chefs for hundreds of extraordinary events that help raise awareness to fight food waste and promote sustainability. Many of the participating locations are transit accessible, including:

Narisawa Satoyama Exhibition at Union Station: an exhibition that focuses on the dishes created by chef Yoshihiro Narisawa and “beneficial gastronomy” — gastronomy for the body and soul. It will be on display at Union Station from May 1 to May 31 and is open to the public.

Food Bowl Night Market: a bustling outdoor street-food market featuring more than 50 of L.A.’s restaurants and food trucks. The Night Market will take place at Grand Park in DTLA from May 16 to May 20 and is open to the public. Get to Grand Park via the Red/Purple Line Civic Center/Grand Park Station. Many Metro buses also stop in the area. While the night market in general is free to attend, there is a VIP Supermarket section that requires tickets…but if you Go Metro you’ll receive a $2 discount!
