Altadena Farmers’ Market Wednesday: Stock Up for Thanksgiving

Pre-made foods and ingredients will be available Wednesday, or you can also grab a quick and tasty meal Wednesday night before Thursday’s Thanksgiving festivities.

Thanksgiving is almost here and the Altadena Farmers’ Market on Wednesday will have vendors ready to help make your feast special.

Elizabeth Bowman of the Altadena Farmers’ Market shared some of the pre-made, produce and specialty items that will be at the market Wednesday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Loma Alta Park at Dabney Avenue and West Palm Street:

  • Morning Glory Confections will be selling apple and pumpkin pie along with his regular treats like brownies and peanut brittle.
  • Big Mista's BBQ will have smoked turkey breast -- good for people with small Thanksgiving gatherings.
  • Mother Moo is offering pumpkin ice cream pie and quarts of Triple Milk, Organic Vanilla, Cinnamon, Organic Pumpkin ice cream.
  • Milkman Cheese is offering special holiday cheese platters, complete with cheese slates.
  • Brun's Creole Soul Kitchen will have okra gumbo to spice up any Thanksgiving meal.
  • Shucks Oyster Bar will have packages of smoked sturgeon, trout and salmon -- not a Thanksgiving special, but would be a nice addition to Thanksgiving morning breakfast (smoked salmon and bagel) or make for a good Thanksgiving Day appetizer.

Produce vendors will be well stocked with the following for Thanksgiving shoppers:

apples, avocados, arugula
cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, celery
dandelion greens
kale, kiwi
leeks, lettuce
mandarins, mint
oranges, oregano
persimmons, pomegranate juice, pomello
raisins, rosemary
sage, sprouts, swiss chard

... and more!

Host/Hostess Gifts

There will also be a great opportunity to get a host/hostess gift at the market from Brassica & Brine's sauerkraut or kimchi to Spade & Seeds seedlings to a nice bottle of olive oil and vinegar from Beyond the Olive. A bag of Plow & Gun coffee beans is also nice to keep people from falling into a tryptophan induced haze.

Eat at the Market

The Altadena Farmers' Market Food Court will have BBQ, pupusas, thai chicken satay, Brun's Creole Soul Kitchen, vegetarian pierogis and an oyster bar if you want to have dinner there or take something home.
