photo request #21: new neighborhoods


last thursday, both petrea and cafe suggested i head out and find some neighborhoods that i don't spend much time in.

george's market is located off the main drag in pasadena, and caters to the neighborhood around it. inside you are greeted warmly with friendly and personal staff, and hey - they have quality meats, right? i love places like this. unaffiliated with a national chain, family owned and operated, and fewer and fewer of them exist today.

thanks for the suggestions - keep them coming!

Hey, this is our neighborhood! Good 'ol George's ... when ever we need an onion quick, this is where we go.

I've seen that b4, but where??

Oh yeah, in Amanda Mae's area!!

You caught it at a good angle - great timing, bw!

It is located along Villa. I can't remember the cross streets, but it's east of Lake.

It's on Wilson and Villa. My mother and I used to go there often when I was a toddler, and every time I'd go straight to the back, on the left, and get a big glass bottle of soda. That building looks the same as it did in 1970; love those old buildings.

I knew someone would help me up. Thanks for the insight sjan.

George is Brian & Megan Shope's landlord. Their place is on the other side of the street, towards Lake. Not sure that it's a photogenic as the store though.

Petrea said...

You scooped me! I've been meaning to try it. Did you buy any meat?

Clare, I didn't realize that is close to the Shope family.

Petrea, sadly I did not buy any meat... maybe next time!
