Free Market: A New Hidden Gem with Outdoor Shopping and Dining in Playa Vista

Updated on Apr 22, 2021

Even if you’ve driven on Jefferson Blvd adjacent to Playa Vista, you might have missed the brand new super-hip shopping and restaurant complex there called Free Market Playa Vista. A residential/commercial/retail complex, Free Market has a park/playground-like feel but has eateries, boutiques, and shops.

It’s not a huge shopping center, but it’s very modern and well worth checking out, especially on a Saturday morning when the Playa Vista Farmer’s market is there. When we went, there was even some live music, a rarity during COVID.

Most of the complex is outdoors, but there is an indoor section that includes Loqui (Mexican restaurant), and Jeni’s Ice Cream.

There is a huge public parking structure so parking is not a problem.

Overall, we really enjoyed the farmer’s market and exploring this brand-new outdoor shopping and dining concept. It’s still somewhat of a work in progress, with some stores still on the way, but that means it will only get better! – Brian
