Perfect for kids and toddlers. And anyone else who takes their healthy grocery shopping seriously. The South Pasadena Farmers Market is one of the best organic farmers markets in the L.A. area. The north end of the Market is just a few steps from the Mission street station. Vendors sell a wide range of organic fruits and vegetables, honey, grass-fed beef, free-range eggs, flowers, plants, bread, seafood, and other items. There's also a great variety of prepared meals, garlic chicken, tamales, Santa Maria tri tip and corn-on-the-cob to name a few. Plus there's that one guy who plays the congas at every farmer's market and ethnic festival in America.

From the Mission Street Metro Station, head west. You'll cross two street lights and it's on the left. They usually have fresh flowers and plants before you enter. The usual Trader Joes fare is offered, which means you never know what new specials they have in stock. Healthy grocery shopping has never been so affordable or friendly.
