Announcing the launch on May 30th of the Altadena Farmers’ Market! Please check back often for news and more information about our vendors and activities.
Wednesday’s 3~7pm ~ Loma Alta Park[Adjacent to the Altadena Community Garden]600 West Palm StreetAltadena, CA 91001
Description

The certified market has 30 booths selling fresh fruits and vegetables as well as prepared and pre-packaged food that may be enjoyed onsite at the market setting of Loma Alta Park.

With a strong commitment to the community, the market has a strong focus on (su)urban backyard farmers, small family farms and sellers based in Altadena. Our Assistant Secretary of Urban Farming helps coordinate the market’s (sub)urban backyard farmer program as well as develop resources and workshops to incubate new farmers into the market.

The market firmly establishes Altadena as the epicenter of the burgeoning urban food movement. The long-awaited market was established in response to the community’s need for more options to shop locally for healthy food as well as an outgrowth of Altadena’s independent spirit.

Altadena Heritage is the proud sponsor of the market

The market is committed to a low environmental footprint and will be phasing in a multi-teired plan to achieve zero waste. This will be evident from the first market day with a plastic shopping bag ban, no Styrofoam policy and compost/recycling/trash sorting stations.
