Photo Gallery: What's In Season At The Farmers Market

Summer may not be technically over, but now that Labor Day has come and gone and schools are back in session, it kind of feels like it. Early September, however, can be one of the hottest times in Southern California, especially in the San Fernando and San Gabriel valleys. Not so good for us, but not bad for the produce at the farmers markets. The Pasadena farmers market, which began in 1984 and is held on Saturdays in Victory Park, seemingly right under the looming San Gabriel mountains, was packed this past weekend, perhaps because of the holidays or maybe just because it was a neighborly way to spend a morning before the temperature hit triple digits. Turn the page for a gallery of what's in season.
