Los Angeles Shadow Market
Type: Marketplace
Status: Active
Location: Los Angeles, California


The Los Angeles Shadow Market is a common Shadow World haunt and marketplace in Los Angeles. It is managed by the warlock Barnabas Hale.[1]


The Market itself is a large square concealed from mundanes behind Kendall Alley in Old Town Pasadena.[2]


The Los Angeles Shadow Market is a place where Downworlders and the occasional mundane with the Sight buy, sell, and trade certain wares and skills such as sorcery and illegal demon powders.


Stalls at the LA Shadow Market sell weapons, potions, jewellery, charms and fortune-telling.

At one point a stall existed for the purpose of recruiting Downworlders for the Lottery.

Known Residents


  • Johnny Rook opened his booth at the Market when he was a teenager.[3] Emma Carstairs was a frequent customer.[2]
  • Because of the Cold Peace, faeries were forbidden to do business at the Market but were still allowed to linger in the area.[2]
  • Shadowhunters typically do not mingle in or go to the Market. Whenever they come to the Market, the Downworlders, fearing arrest and/or punishment, hide any illegal materials.[2]
  • Shadow Markets were created in the aftermath of the Cold Peace as a way for Downworlders to do business away from the spotlight of the Law.Cite error: Invalid <ref> tag; refs with no content must have a name.
