Our Villa Parke Center Farmers' Market was started in 1980, and the Victory Park Farmers' Market was started in 1984. They have been open every week since then, rain or shine (with the exception of the week of the Rose Bowl Parade). We were proud to be recognized with the 1997 Arthur Nobel Award for "Making Life Better in Pasadena."
The markets are sponsored by the City of Pasadena Human Services and Recreation Department under the rules and regulations of the Department of Food and Agriculture of the State of California.
As a Certified Farmers' Market, we provide you with fresh, nutritious, locally-grown fruits and vegetables. We are proud and active members of the California Federation of Certified Farmers' Markets.
