Shoppers making their weekly run for fresh fruits and vegetables, along with prepared foods, including everything from ice cream to short ribs, will be glad to know the South Pasadena Farmers’ Market is extending its hours of operation.
Starting Thursday, March 15, four days after daylight savings begins, the market will open at its usual time of 4 p.m., but close at 8 p.m. to welcome in spring. The market at Mission Street and Meridian Avenue is typically open until 7 p.m. during the winter months.
Crowds, say market organizers, are sure to increase as warmer temperatures return after some chilly, rainy conditions in recent days.
Many recognize the market as a popular Thursday stop, especially since the Gold Line light rail has a station in South Pasadena.
On Google reviews, Rebeca Quesada said: “A good selection of artisanal foods and farm fresh produce and meats.”
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.
