NIRVANA IN Pasadena

We stayed during our recent visit to the JPL open house for several nights. My young sons and I stayed in the Club Level California Suite during a busy weekend for the hotel. Despite the level of occupancy, my sons and I were impressed by the level of care, attention and service we received. My youngest played the game- who was the nicest person today? In the hotel. Having traveled from the east coast for a long weekend, having such service and comfort was a welcome respite.

The hotel property is beautiful, well appointed, and comfortable. For the kids, there was a welcome gift, s’mores by the pool, the pool, and room service to their liking. For the dad, there was the comfort of having one;s children feel like cherished guests- even in the Club Lounge.

The rooms were comfortable, but the bed was analog technology. The rooms wears otherwise very comfortable, the bathrooms were up to par for amenities and services at the level of leading hotels.

The gym had good hours, good equipment and helpful staff.

We will return.

Amazing Management & Staff

This is such a beautiful property and it is so well run! I stay at Starwood Properties all over the world, and this Westin is perhaps the finest example of a property perfectly managed. The staff is so well trained and they are warm in the most genuine and sincere way. I have stayed at this lovely property many times, and am constantly delighted with the kindness of the staff! I recently had an unusual request and Marina Dutton, the Director of Operations, and Aissa Flores truly went out of their way to accommodate me. I am the type of person that hates to ask for help, but due to a medical emergency, I truly needed some help, and WOW Marina and Aissa were so helpful that I felt humbled by their kindness. With a staff of incredible people and a hotel that is gorgeous from the landscaping to the views, to the design, you can’t go wrong in choosing this wonderful hotel when you are in Pasadena. It’s walking distance to everything including the train station which can get you to downtown LA in 15 minutes. I often stay here while attending trade shows in downtown LA. The pool is always warm enough to jump right in, and the gym is the best you will find at any hotel in the world. It’s large with great equipment, great light, and a beautiful view of the mountains. Oskar often helps me with my luggage, and he always has a smile and a wonderful attitude. Fabulous property!

Why Choose Pasadena Farmers Market?

Why Choose Pasadena Farmers Market?

You'll be amazed at the year round variety of fresh vegetables and fruits at the Pasadena Farmers' Market in Pasadena, California

What is a Certified Farmers’ Market?

In a certified market, the farmers who grow the produce sell their fruits and vegetables directly to the public. It is where the agrarian community relates to the urban community.

More specifically, a certified farmers’ market is a location approved by the county agricultural commissioner where certified farmers offer for sale only those agricultural products they grow themselves. Certified Farmers Markets provide multiple benefits for small farmers, consumers and the community.

The Benefits

Quality is the number one reason consumers shop at Certified Farmers’ Markets–fresh picked, vine and tree ripened quality. Cost savings is also attractive to customers, and often this is possible because the direct sales by farmers to the consumer eliminates the cost of middleman marketing.

For farmers, the certified farmers markets provide an outlet especially suited to moving smaller volumes of produce, thus creating a marketing channel outside of the traditional large volume distribution systems.

CFM’s also allow farmers to sell tree ripened fruit which is too delicate for the packing and shipping process. It also increases profits for the farmers because of the cost savings.

Farmers Market Basics

A farmers’ market (also farmers market) is a physical retail market featuring foods sold directly by farmers to consumers. Farmers’ markets typically consist of booths, tables or stands, outdoors or indoors, where farmers sell fruits, vegetables, meats, and sometimes prepared foods and beverages. They are distinguished from public markets, which are generally housed in permanent structures, open year-round, and offer a variety of non-farmer/producer vendors, packaged foods and non-food products.

Farmers’ markets exist worldwide and reflect their local culture and economy. Their size ranges from a few stalls to several city blocks. In some cultures, live animals, imported delicacies unavailable locally, and personal goods and crafts are sold.

Due in part to the increased interest in healthier foods, a greater desire to preserve local cultivars or livestock (some of which may not be up to commercial shipping or yield standards) and an increased understanding of the importance of maintaining small, sustainable farms on the fringe of urban environments, farmers’ markets in the US have grown from 1,755 in 1994 to 4,385 in 2006, to 5,274 in 2009, to 8,144 in 2013. In New York City, there are 107 farmers’ markets in operation. In the Los Angeles area, 88 farmers’ markets exist, many of which support Hispanic and Asian fare.
