Hajin C. gave it five stars on Yelp. “This is one of the best Farmers’ Markets around!” she said. “I usually like coming to this one because the ones in the city like Silver Lake or downtown LA can be so busy and really hard to find parking. This one is right beside the South Pasadena Public Library so you can usually find parking on the surrounding side streets.”

The market will return to winter hours next November when daylights savings time ends.
