Union Station Train-to-Table Farmers Market launches this Thursday, July 12

Union Station has partnered with California Certified Farmers Markets to bring the new Train-to-Table Farmers Market to Union Station’s South Patio (it’s next to the waiting room) beginning this Thursday, July 12. The market will take place every Thursday from noon to 6 p.m. 

The market will feature a wide array of fresh, local fruits and vegetables as well as fresh-cut flowers, artisanal baked breads and roasted coffee, and a host of small bites for a mid-day snack or dinner on the commute home.

Union Station is accessible by Amtrak, Metrolink, Metro Rail, Metro Bus and numerous other bus lines. For more information on how to reach the station, or on programs at Union Station, visit unionstationla.com.

    • Hi,

      The farmers market is outdoors on the patio. There are no lockers at Union Station.

      Thank you,

  1. This is awesome! But noon to 6 makes it difficult for those who get off work at 6pm, would be great if it ran a bit later (at least in the summertime when I stays light longer.)

    • Agreed. I’m guessing it’s a pretty small group that can go shopping between 12-6pm on a weekday.

  2. This is an awesome idea, I love the support behind local farmers and fresher produce options; but my worry is that Union Station doesn’t have the casual market-goer traffic to make these events a success. I go through Union Station several times a week, but never in a position where I can / want to shop either before or after work.

    I do look forward to the day that our beautiful rail terminal is surrounded by offices and a much higher density of residences, rather than enormous asphalt plains, dingy bail bond offices, City and county jail buildings… Wish it were more like Denver Union Station, a true destination that is inviting and functional for travelers and casual visitors.

  3. Good someone is improving the fast food choices at LA UNION STATION! AMTRAK is now cutting back to cold, pre-packaged, high carb meals on its long distant trains.

  4. I’ve been riding the rails–Expo, Red, Gold lines–quite a bit lately and have some thoughts on the constant barrage of warnings and messages over the P.A. system. Please contact me. Thanks.
