I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

Moon cakes selling like hot cakes

As the Asian American population grows in the San Gabriel Valley, so does the demand for moon cakes, KPPC reports. The flaky round pasty is a traditional treat associated with the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival, where friends and family gather, snack on moon cakes, and admire the full moon. It falls on Sept. 30 this year.

Small bakeries to Costco are experiencing the boom — and producing moon cakes en mass. Samuel Huang, 27, spent about $50 at the Alhambra Costco on moon cakes for his dentist, his girlfriend's family and himself. "It's the tradition and it's the time when you give family and friends some gifts," Huang told KPCC. "It's a way to show some appreciation."

KPCC profiled bakeries that make their own moon cakes from scratch. Do you know any others? Let us know?
