Downey Farmer’s Market

Last week, Downey had its first-ever Farmer’s Market. Located on 2nd St. and New St., behind the Downey Krikorian Theatre, quite conveniently adjacent to a large parking structure.

It is small (<20 booths), but it has everything you need: several fruit vendors, a woman selling gorgeous orchids, a fish-monger, and some dude selling these essential oil lotions (i got a lavender one).

berries Downey has been adding a bunch of big-box stores—notable is Downey Landing, a strip-mall complex with a Michael’s, an Old Navy, and a Best Buy. The Farmer’s Market stands as a welcome contrast to the retail nightmare. It is a real treat getting up early on a Saturday, picking up some fresh berries for breakfast and some artichokes for dinner. I even ran into old friends!

See you there, neighbor.

  1. Nice post, I just got back from my Family Festival and Farmers Market here in outer monrovia and thought about posting. I guess I should let you shine and wait a bit.

  2. I stumbled on the Downey Farmer’s Market while I was out and about. (I’m a resident of the area). I bought some strawberries but nothing else, but I didn’t get there until about 10. I was having the car serviced down the street. Maybe I’ll run into you at the next one.
