Best Evening Farmers Market Los Angeles 2013 

South Pasadena Farmers Market

Every Thursday, from 4 to 8 p.m., South Pasadena hosts a dusk farmers market where Meridian intersects with El Centro, beginning a few steps away from the Gold Line stop. It's a market as shaped by the community. Locals make an event of the once-a-week gathering, where farmers (Suncoast Farms and McGrath Family Farms) and purveyors (Carmela Ice Cream, Robin's Woodfire BBQ) come every week. It's a smaller market than the one at Hollywood or Santa Monica, but it makes up for its lack of size with conviviality. Enjoy the bustle among stalls or join the families picnicking over roasted corn, rotisserie chicken and hot-pressed panini on the lawn right outside the train station. Meridian Avenue at El Centro, South Pasadena. southpasadenafarmersmarket.org. —Christine Chiao
