The Monrovia street faire is outside my office every Friday, I haven't checked out the veggies, maybe I'll run out there this week. (The vendors drive us crazy by taking all of our visitor spots in our parking lot and then sassing you when asked to move.)

Prices at farmers markets in general are much better than grocery stores, plus the freshness factor, but last time I went to West Covina's (months ago) things didn't seem so fresh. I don't go often enough to judge if it was a fluke though. Need to put that on my To Do list, farmers market every Saturday. ;)

Monrovia's farmers market is great BTW, every Fri night.

They had the best strawberries (I haven't been for a few weeks, so not sure if they still do), couldn't eat them from the grocery store after getting them there and they were a great price.

The zucchini's are about the same price.

Hello fellow West Covinians! I haven't been to the Farmers Market since it moved across the street from the Sizzlers/Paneras parking lot. How do the prices compare to the grocery store? Just the fact that they are organic is a plus but with the economy the way it is we have to watch every penny.

Has anyone shopped at Sprouts Farmers Market?

There is one in Claremont on Foothill, just East of Towne. I checked it out last week. Real nice produce. It's kind of a cross between Trader Joes & Whole Foods, but not as expensive as Whole Foods. I got peaches for 3 lbs/$1. They sure were tasty!

If you shop on Wednesdays, you can take advantage of both weeks ads. (Their ads run Wed to Wed.)

The last couple of Saturday's I've been stopping at the Farmers Market in WC (it's behind the Post Office in the Applebee's parking lot.) I've been getting some great veggies.
One of the growers from Westminster has had some yellow zucchini, it's slightly sweeter than green zucchini, their tomatoes have been delicious and so are the strawberries.

Does anyone know if Covina has a Farmers Market? If so, where and when is it held.

Any other places to get fresh, local veggies?
