Thanks to our friend Allison King for tipping us off to her new produce source, Little Farm Fresh. Owner Jennifer Little, who some locals know from her time working at Camille Frances de Pedrini in South Pasadena, has long “farmed” her home property near the San Gabriel Mission, and she’s started a produce delivery business. Her produce is organic, of course, tended by hand, certified by the state, and, says Allison, very flavorful. She grows seasonal fruit (raspberries, passionfruit, Manzano bananas), vegetables (French sorrel, various cucumbers, collard greens, Tropeana Lunga onions, exotic squashes and beans and, of course, tomatoes) and a wonderful array of herbs.
And what a bargain! A large sampler box from her weekly harvest is just $15, delivered to your door. You can also order specific fruits or vegetables by the bunch or box.
