#5 - farmers markets



august will be the last month of the sky is big in pasadena.  

i have accepted a position at salford mennonite church in harleysville, pennsylvania.  we will be moving in september, so august will be my farewell month to the city of pasadena.  when we moved here from virginia i posted a list of the ten things i would miss most about harrisonburg.  i figured that would be a good way to end our time here, so each day i will be doing one final rundown of life in this great city.  i have prepared two lists - ten things i won't be sad to leave behind (which thankfully, are already posted), and twenty of my absolute favorite things about pasadena.  we have arrived at my top ten things about life in pasadena.

#5 - farmers markets

picture this - fresh produce, all year long.  so goes life in southern california.  and if you live in pasadena, you are fortunate to have access to farmers markets on tuesday morning at villa parke, wednesday afternoon on south lake avenue, thursday nights in south pasadena, and saturday morning at the high school.  if you expand to a few towns over you find markets in countless others on all days of the week.  amazing!

They're wonderful, but where you're going, you'll probably be able to buy fruit and vegetables and honey direct from the farm gate. I miss the pick-your-own fields in England, and seasonal abundance.
