The Best International Markets In L.A.

By Krista,

One of the greatest parts about living in Los Angeles is that you really can feel like you’re traveling without having to step foot outside of our city limits. There are so many wonderful resources for international food here, including serious supermarkets and specialty stores.

It wasn’t always so easy to find goods from around the globe, which is how many places like Artesia’s Little India and Little Saigon got started; they were originally the only resource for immigrants to procure supplies from their mother land. But the ease of transport has made it much easier to import goods, meaning they’re not only accessible but more affordable.

I love shopping at international markets not only because it allows me to take a journey with my tastebuds and experiment with new ingredients, but also because it’s cheaper. Granted it’s not necessarily organic or sustainably raised, these stores sell produce and protein for an incredibly affordable rate.

Here are some of my favorite places to shop around Los Angeles.

All of the lights, all of the lights.
There's a darling old school soda jerk inside the carousel at the Santa Monica Pier that serves phosphorous, banana splits, soda creams, and malted Fosselmans shakes like this one! I've had a blast partnering with @skyscanner @theexpate this week exploring Santa Monica and learning new bits about my city, and can't wait to do it again. #seesantamonica #letsgoeverywhere #basecretstreets #letmeeatcake
Wouldn't mind living here one bit, no siree. Have really been enjoying exploring Santa Monica this week with @skyscanner @theexpate and am so stoked for our live Periscope tomorrow am at 10. Be sure to tune in!
Time for one of my fave sweet treats in Santa Monica! Who's comin with me to @huckcafe? #seesantamonica
There's nothing more soothing than the sound of the sea and a gentle breeze blowing through the palm trees. @skyscanner @seesantamonica @british_airways @theexpate #seesantamonica
Being in Santa Monica always makes me feel like I'm a kid again! It's really a playground for adults too, and I'm so excited to share the sights and bites from the city with @skyscanner @british_airways @seesantamonica @theexpate this week. #seesantamonica #bacitysecrets #whponthego

Enjoying all the beautiful old buildings in Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood. It's been so long since my first visit and I can't wait to explore more. Any tips  Insta fam?
The smell of toasty rye and tart sour dough is a warm embrace on a rainy LA day. Thanks for chatting @lodgebreadco, and for coming along @alexandracheney.
Mondays are a real drag. Can we go back to the doggies and donuts from yesterday plz? Kthxbye.
I love traveling abroad, but it's sometimes just as exciting to explore my hometown. Couldn't think of a better spot for a staycation than @viceroysm! Do I really HAVE to check out?

    The number of companies and individual freelance designers on the internet are growing every day, providing more and more competition, and ultimately it brings down the cost.
