The Anaheim Packing House is a 42,000-square-foot (3,900-square-meter) gourmet food hall in Downtown Anaheim, California. It is part of the Anaheim Packing District, which also includes the Packard Building, a rebuilt 1925 Mission Revival style building, and a farmer’s market. The Packing Building, which opened on May 31, 2014, is housed in a restored 1919 Sunkist citrus packing house designed in the Spanish Colonial Revival style. It is one of Orange County’s last remaining packing houses, and the only one in Anaheim. In 2015, the Anaheim Orange and Lemon Association Packing House was added to the National Register of Historic Places.
What was previously an orange processing mill has subsequently been refurbished as the fashionable Packing House dining hall. The former Sunkist plant was built in 1919, when citrus was Orange County’s principal source of income. This food hall offers a one-stop sampling of the diverse population, fresh products, and world-class culinary abilities that contribute to Southern California’s reputation as one of the best places to eat in the world.
Lunch here is more than simply a meal; it’s an experience. Aside from the numerous cuisines available, there are unique culinary alternatives, such as The Kroft, where mash-ups like chicken tikka poutine or cheeseburger egg rolls electrify the menu. Have you ever tasted a Fruity Pebbles-stuffed Japanese crepe? Visit the Crepe Coop and experience a delicious new sensation!
Go down to the MAKE Building, one of the district’s newest buildings. The MAKE Building, once a marmalade factory established in 1917, is now home to local favorites such as Unsung Brewing Company, Pali Wine Company, and Jav’s BBQ.
Visit the Packard Building, a former car dealership where you can eat at Umami Burger. Gather with friends for dim sum at 18 Folds or farm-to-table comfort food at Poppy and Seed, which is located across the street from Farmers Park, where guests may participate in community yoga, gardening courses, and other special events.
The Anaheim Packing District is also just around the corner from Downtown Anaheim and only two miles from the Disneyland® Resort, making it an easy and accessible stop to add to your Anaheim journey.
Farmers Park, a welcoming two-acre place with spaces to stroll and rest, is part of the Anaheim Packing District complex that extends beyond building makeovers. Take an outdoor yoga class, play table tennis, see a movie on an outdoor screen, or visit the Farmers Park Market on Sundays—don’t miss Orange Clementine Bakery’s citrus-infused cake.
