Now Open: The Market at Santa Monica Place

Video courtesy of L.A. Sates

Santa Monica Place continues to distinguish itself as a truly unique destination and the recent opening of The Market continues in that vein. In the same way that Santa Monica Place broadened the notion of what a mall was when it re-emerged less than a year ago, The Market is changing the perception of what food inside a mall can be.

The Market occupies nearly 15,000 square feet on the Dining deck and is a wondrous showcase of more than a dozen local merchants offering a variety of hand-made chocolate, spices, cured meats, cheeses, wine, fresh baked goods, a florist, coffee and more. It is truly a sight to see.
