Home to some of the finest flea markets in the world, Los Angeles has added yet another eclectic marketplace and this time in Downtown Los Angeles. Located in the Historic Core of Downtown Los Angeles, Downtown Flea is made up of up to 400 local indie designers and crafts people, emphasizing unique vintage, collectible and antique dealers. For those who would rather fly than drive, the Downtown Flea even features a helicopter landing pad located on top of its adjacent parking structure. The Downtown Flea takes place on the last Sunday of each month. It runs from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. in four open-air parking lots on Spring Street, Broadway and Main Street, between 2nd and 3rd streets. Entry is $5 at 246 S. Spring St.  For more information, visit http://dtflea.com/

Measuring just under two square miles, West Hollywood (aka WeHo to locals) is one of L.A.’s most popular and vibrant districts. Several notable dining spots, including Lucques, Sweet Lady Jane and Madeo, fall just outside its boundaries. But WeHo proper is jam-packed with excellent restaurants: classics like Dan Tana’s, new kids like Connie & Ted’s, edgy hole-in-the-walls such as Night + Market and glossy lookers such as Fig & Olive. The West Hollywood dining scene has it all, and here are some of our favorite restaurants.
