Shoppers are already filling up their bags and visiting their favorite vendors before the last stands are set up first thing Saturday morning when the Pasadena Farmers' Market gets underway at Victory Park.

Before the sun gets too fiercely intense in the parking lot adjacent to the park and Pasadena High School the narrow arteries of the medium-sized weekly market that runs from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. are full of locals loading up on farm fresh produce, prepared goods, and gorgeous flowers, among other goodies.

Sconeage Farms has their freshly-baked scones and tubs of delicious granola, while you might find a line for fresh seafood at West Coast Fish. You can pick out your week's worth of fresh fruit and veggies while listening to various musicians singing and strumming acoustic guitars, and carbo load thanks to the abundant goodies for sale at Old Town Baking Company's table.

This is the home market for the kids of John Muir High, whose Muir Ranch student growers set up a stand to sell floral arrangements made with colorful stems of flowers grown just five miles down the road. Since those kids are wrangled by LAist contributor Mud Baron, he spent some time recently roaming the market as he did in Hollywood, capturing some of the best and brightest items from local farmers and vendors for our ongoing Know Your Farmers' Market series.
