Doing all of those delightful and delicious things, all in a row, in a palate-pleasing possibility when visiting one of Southern California's most venerable and vivacious public markets.
But capacious halls of food, drink, and culinary delights are also ideal spaces to fill with festive cheer, the sort of seasonal offerings that complement all of the eats, sips, and spirit found within the sizable space throughout the entire calendar.

That festive cheer will complement the beautiful buoyancy of Grand Central Market over much of December. And we do mean "much," for visitors to the Broadway bastion of bites and beverages will find that a Holiday Wonderland has taken happy hold.
That sparkly stretch begins on Dec. 3 and concludes on New Year's Eve, truly making this particular Holiday Wonderland a delight set to last for nearly the entirety of the month.

A Holiday Bazaar, happening most of the days of the run — do check the schedule before you go — will be full of intriguing gifts and goodies, while Santa-helmed meet & greets will bring that Kringle-style charm.
Pancake breakfasts presented by Get Caked, Painting & Vino pop-ups, photo moments deemed "Instagrammable," and The Very Best Cookie Workshop are all weaving with twinkle and tastiness throughout this flavorful festivity.
