New Altadena farmers market starts in May
The Institute of Domestic Technology announced that the Altadena farmers market is set to launch May 30 at Loma Alta Park. The weekly Wednesday market will operate from 3 to 7 p.m., sponsored by Altadena Heritage and managed and operated by the Institute of Domestic Technology, a new organization that cites as its purpose reigniting "the passion of how we make food, the ingredients we source and the farms on which they originate."
The confirmed list of farmers at the market thus far: Shu and Debby Takikawa's "The Garden of..." for organic produce; Kenter Canyon Farms for greens and herbs; L.A. Bread Bakers, which will grind fresh Sonoran wheat flour on a bicycle–powered grain mill at the market; Suncoast Farm for beans, Brussels sprouts, artichokes and cauliflower; Backwards Beekeepers for honey; and more. Plus Plow & Gun, an Altadena-based coffee roaster, and Drake Family Farms' goat cheese.
Other vendors will include Big Mista's BBQ, Mother Moo Creamery, Sqirl Jams and Cast Iron Gourmet.
Loma Alta Park, 3330 Lincoln Ave., Altadena.
