Alhambra Farmers Market celebrates 30 years

The Alhambra Farmers Market celebrated its 30th anniversary Sunday with a party at its new location on Second Street. Despite temperatures in the high 80s, residents enjoyed live entertainment, games, cake, punch, and a raffle on the market's first Sunday between Main Street and Commonwealth Avenue. Vendors also offered an assortment of fresh food and goods, from fruits and vegetables to bonsai trees.

City staff relocated the market due to the construction of a new mixed-used development at Alhambra Place. The Farmers Market now runs along Second, with vendor booths in two long lines down the street.

One resident thought the new layout made shopping easier. "I really was impressed with the layout. Having all of the vendors in one long line enables visitors to walk from one end to the other and see what's on both sides at once," Linda Trevillian said. "I was able to find my very favorite vendor — Tenerelli Orchards, which is the one I look forward to every spring until stone fruit season begins — and get my weekly supply of the best peaches, nectarines, and plums available."

Alhambra Farmers Market manager Harry Wong said the reception at the new location was “perfect,” adding that he was worried the new location would not be as convenient as the previous one on Monterey and Bay streets. 

“Everybody was happy with the move," Wong said, noting the ample parking available underneath the Alhambra Public Library on Second and the market's access to Main. “Everybody loved it. Being able to park in the library parking lot and walk to Second Street was as perfect as it gets.”

City staff is calling the relocation temporary, as they are uncertain whether the market will return to Bay State and Monterey streets once construction at Alhambra Place is completed. But regardless of location, Wong encouraged residents to attend the market.

“We’re open rain or shine every Sunday except Easter," he said.
