These weeks of isolation have seen unprecedented crowds at Pasadena’s Farmers’ Market at Victory Park. In order to keep things safe and organized, the market will immediately implement Pasadena Health Department requirements of “single entry” with separate exits/no entry.
At least for the next few weeks, according to Farmer’s Market Manager Gretchen Sterling, entry into the market will be from the far north corner of the lot, in front of the Pasadena High School property. All entries will be monitored with limited entry times in order to maintain the required “social distancing.”
The market also encourages customers to wear protective face coverings and gloves, even though customers are not allowed to pick their items at most stands.
“Farmers keep farming, crops keep growing, and people need the best healthy foods in their bodies to maintain their strength and live the healthy lifestyles that we all want,” said Sterling.
Customers should also always wash their produce when they use it, said Sterling, especially during this time, as they enjoy their fresh, nutrient-rich foods at home.
The Farmers’ Market hours are Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
The market is located in the 2900 block of North Sierra Madre Boulevard, at the intersection of Sierra Madre Blvd and Paloma Street (in front of Pasadena High School). Take the San Gabriel off ramp of 210 Freeway. At the end of the off ramp, turn north on Sierra Madre Blvd (towards mountains) and proceed 1/2 mile to the market.
