L.A.'s Most Family-Friendly Farmers Market

Late sunsets and warm evenings are perfect for South Pasadena's Thursday night farmers market. We've written about the weekly event plenty of times in the past, but it's worth reminding you again.

Evan and I returned to the farmers' market on Thursday night, and the mood was perfect. The air smelled of barbecue. A jazz ensemble performed. Kids ran around the grass as parents talked. Metro trains passed by, captivating the kids (including the Kid Formerly Known as the Blogger Toddler).

We both ate tamales, and later bought two corns on the cob -- and finished all of it. (The KFKATBT was truly hungry.) We marched up and down the stalls, sampling fruit and buying a container of loose grapes for $1 (bargain time!)

If you can't make it on Thursdays, South Pasadena is also sponsoring outdoor movies for kids at the same spot on Mission throughout the month of July on Saturday evenings, starting at 8 p.m. See you there...
