440 S Anaheim Blvd, Anaheim, CA 92805
Open daily from 9:00 am to 11:00 pm the Anaheim Packing District in Orange County attracts not only the OC locals, but visitors from all over the world.
Come savor the most extravagant and uncommon dishes brought to you by professional vendors. Our family has a good time every visit, it is a very much kids friendly atmosphere. The prices are also reasonable and shouldn’t hurt your wallet.
Furthermore there’s a pleasant faux grassy area for kids to run around a be a little wild between the Cultivation Kitchen and the 18 folds restaurants, aka the Farmer’s Park. There’s even a ping pong table in the park and a miniature garden!
A little market in a warehouse – better known as the Anaheim Packing District – a one of a kind Orange Country foodie heaven. Everyone who lives in OC have either heard off or already been to the largest indoor bazaar which hosts some of the bests restaurants, small eateries, bistros, gastro pubs, creameries, juice bar, bakery, brewery and much much more. Taste the world while staying on OC this November.
You will be stunned with the pleasant layout of the food court. Repurposed old warehouse elegantly integrates Korean, Vietnamese, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Syrian, Mexican, English and traditional American cuisines as well as many other world kitchens all under one roof. You will definitely satisfy whatever craving you’re having and perhaps some more.
The place kind of reminded us the Oxbow Market in Napa, but much cooler and more family oriented. The marketplace is a prime Anaheim degustation experience that you should add to your itinerary while exploring Orange county with kids.
In addition to the main building make sure to stop by the Umami burger joint, the Anaheim Brewery, the Unsung Brewing Company and a few other located outside the main building.
There are a couple of bars with some good brews from all over California and some decent imported beers.
Entertainment at the district
Begin exploring the events and festivals on their official Calendar Page. Also Nov 13 marks an amazing opportunity to explore the cuisines around the world without leaving California.
The central stage set on the steps inside the packing house is an awesome idea to combine the dinner and entertainment. Many of the local talented musicians make their break under the roof of the tiny old warehouse.
Packing district’s 100th birthday in 2019
I’d recommend you to begin the journey exploring the historic packing district by watching a short documentary in what seems like the world’s smallest two-seater theater within the “Sunkist building.”
As you enter the main foyer – the tiny cinema should be located to your right. The packing district was repurposed multiple time throughout its 100 year history.
The packing house was added to the National Register of Historic Places as the Anaheim Orange and Lemon Association Packing House in 2015. You have a once in a life time experience to celebrate Packing district’s 100th birthday in 2019.
