History

Built in 1919 at the edge of downtown Anaheim and along the Southern Pacific rail line, the Packing House was a hub of commerce for the area. Local farmers arrived to unload trucks of freshly picked citrus to begin the process of washing, grading, and eventual packing into wooden crates. Once completed, the crated and labeled citrus would be loaded onto rail cars parked on the side of the building to be shipped nationwide.

The restored Packing House is a carefully curated contemporary food hall reminiscent of the great public markets of South America and Europe. The two level Packing House features a large central atrium with communal dining surrounded by merchants and kiosks of varying sizes as well as outdoor picnic gardens, unique art and sculptures and a building-length southern-style dining porch looking out to the outdoor marketplace, Farmers’ Park, complete with community rocking chairs.
