Know Your Farmers' Market: Saturdays at the Americana at Brand

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

Saturday mornings from 10am to 2pm the Americana at Brand hosts Gigi's Farmers Market, which is small but packed full of good stuff. It is not to be confused with the City of Glendale's Farmers' Market, which is held on Thursdays. (We know that one, too!)

Besides the usual fruits and vegetables from local farms such as Tapia Brothers in Encino, the market sells packaged and baked goods. You can purchase eggs from La Bahn Ranch in Temecula that are cage free, grain fed, and free of hormones and antibiotics. The baked goods are excellent. Pick up some rich scones from Ann's Bakery and a baguette from Boulangerie French Bakery. Alex's Fruits and Nuts based in Lancaster and Gourmet Blends Barrel-aged Balsamics and Oils out of Torrance also have stalls at the Americana.

To add to the experience, fresh ready-to-eat snacks are on sale. You can munch on Bolani Gourmet Afghan food, pizza, sausages, bacon-wrapped hot dogs or Me Gusta Gourmet Tamales while you shop.

Adjacent to the market is a small petting zoo with pony rides, which is open every Saturday.
