Local Lifestyle

Although Mar Vista can be a low-key and relaxing neighborhood, residents have a plethora of happenings to partake in – especially with the almost-year-round perfect weather–making outdoor activities that much more desirable. Mar Vista residents are known to adore the weekly Mar Vista Farmers Market, which many consider to be one of the best in Los Angeles. The market, each Sunday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the corner of Grand View Blvd and Venice Blvd, features fresh produce, specialty goods, live performances, dog sitting services, and even a free kids craft workshop, fun for all ages.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

Mar Vista is home to incredible dining and drinking options, such as the Greek tapas-style Taverna at The Mar Vista, the elevated cafe fare at Rustic Kitchen Restaurant & Wine Bar, the delicious coffee at the neighborhood hangout Alana's Coffee Roasters, the progressive beverages at Accomplice Bar, and the combination of craft beer and art at ArtBarLA. Reserve a lane or host a party at the neighborhood’s super-fun bowling spot Bowlero. Shop at Vintage on Venice for all varieties of indoor and outdoor items, check out the Dog Bakery for fresh-baked treats for your canine, and the Tortoise General Store for unique homegoods finds for your kitchen, bath and living spaces.
