California Market review image

California Market

California Market in Koreatown is the kind of grocery store you walk into with only a few things on your list, but end up spending two hours inside just exploring. Aside from excellent produce and an extensive seafood counter, there’s also a banchan bar, a stall selling Korean fried chicken, and a Tous Les Jours bakery inside. Oh, and an entire food court on the roof, too. Parking can be downright hellacious in this part of town, but luckily, California Market also has a five-story parking structure attached with ample spots available.
