Enjoying the food trucks at Jones on Wednesdays? Why wait another week? Joining the food-truck frenzy is east Pasadena’s Chefs Center of California, which is hosting the Friday Food Fair & Artisanal Marketplace. It’s taken on this adventure to help draw attention to its nonprofit program that helps entrepreneurs start and expand food-based businesses. You can support its program by coming out to sample from the trucks (they include such worthy ones as Flying Pig, the Grilled Cheese Truck and Coolhaus) and shopping at the adjacent artisanal food market. While you’re there, you can tour the kitchens. Check the website to see which trucks are coming that week.
