Today is the first of the month, and that means Theme Day for participating City Daily Photo bloggers. This month's theme is Open Air Markets.
The South Pasadena Farmers Market is much more than a place to buy locally grown produce. It's more like the world's best block party, and it happens every week. Sure, you'll find enough certified organic fruits, veggies and fresh squeezed pomegranate juice to make Dr. Andrew Weil's head spin. But you'll also find flowers, essential oils, beeswax candles, organic soaps and other handmade goodies. Add live music and a tempting array of delicious prepared foods by local eateries and what do you get? A party atmosphere that makes it feel like the weekend even though it's only Thursday.
Check out more about the Farmers Market here. Or better yet, just go. (Don't forget to save room for the roasted corn. It's life changing!)
