Is Grand Central Market Becoming Too Grand?

Hosted by

Grand Central Market, the food hall on Broadway in downtown Los Angeles, has been around almost a hundred years, but dramatic changes have occurred in the past eighteen months. Not only has it introduced gourmet cuisine at gourmet prices, but the design of the market is changing as well. What does it say about what’s happening in downtown as a whole? How do vendors and market-goers feel about it? Do the changes mean unwelcome gentrification or an exciting mix of Angelenos of all stripes?
