It’s 2 Peas in a Pod, a Myriad (of) Flowers, and Mike and (his) Sons Eggs.

All present and accounted for at Pasadena’s Farmers’ Market this Saturday at Victory Park.

Two Peas in a Pod hails from Pismo, Richard Sager its certified organic grower. They specialize in sugar snap, English, and snow peas; bushberries; broccoli; and several types of cauliflower.

Myriad Flowers International is out of Carpenteria and specializes in—yeah, okay, not much to expound on here—flowers, while Mike and Sons Eggs comes from Ontario.

These are just 3 of the 40 vendors to be found every Saturday at Victory Park. Joe Avitua of Walker Farms brings along stonefruits, sugar cane, and pummelos from Exeter, while Apkarian Farms grows 14 varieties of grapes in Dinuba.

And how can you resist names like Holy Guac-Amoly (award-winning guacamole and avocado varieties only June through November), Pudwill selling bushberries from Nipomo, Dr. Chocolate (need we say more?) from Laguna, and Sconeage bakery from Long Beach? We suggest a quick cup of tea or coffee, but skip breakfast because Pasadena’s Certified Farmers’ Market will do right by your stomach, times forty.
