Hi, I am looking for someone that wants to go to the LA Wholesale produce market tomorrow. Maybe if we get a group we will be able to have access to more vendors (buying more than one case?) Shoot me a text if interested :) 313-820-4558

Come share fruit and go on a nature walk/easy hike in this beautiful nature park and join me to celebrate my birthday and my one year anniversary living the fruity lifestyle! Bring your doggies and kids! 

SCHEDULE

12:00 Meetup by casting pond (adjacent from parking lot) 
12:30 Nature walk/easy hike 
2:00 Fruitluck by casting pond
5:00 End

Pasadena’s Lower Arroyo Nature Park runs from the area immediately south of the Colorado Street Bridge to the border of South Pasadena. It spans about 150 acres and contains a fly-casting pond and archery range. Rubble walls retain the slopes and help define paths. It’s perfect for nature lovers and a great spot to walk your dog. Joggers, hikers and walkers alike enjoy the natural, rustic canyon setting shaded by oaks, sycamores, maples and countless white alders. Parking in the lot of Pasadena’s Lower Arroyo Nature Park, I like to go north and walk under the magnificent Colorado Street Bridge. The scenery is gorgeous and the trail crisscrosses a pretty seasonal stream that pools in spots making a nice place for your dog to “take a dip”. This is a fairly mild jaunt and takes about an hour. You can also head south towards South Pasadena. Here the stream-bed is contained in a concrete channel however the surrounding area is a gorgeous deep canyon. This path takes you under several bridges and by the site of the original Busch Gardens (1905–1937). 

DIRECTIONS

CAR: Exit the 134 Freeway at Orange Grove Boulevard in Pasadena and go south on Orange Grove. Turn right onto California Boulevard and right again onto Arroyo Boulevard. The park entrance is on the left, just before Norwood Drive. Parking lot is at the bottom of the hill, on the left.

Alternately, take the 110 Freeway north until its end and continue north on Arroyo Seco Parkway. Turn left onto California Boulevard. When California ends, turn right onto Arroyo Boulevard and look for the park entrance on the left, just before Norwood Drive.

BIKE: There is no bike path along the Arroyo Seco, but Arroyo Boulevard is a designated bike route and a pleasant ride. There is easy bike access from the Metro Gold Line Del Mar Station; follow transit directions below,

TRANSIT: It's a bit of a walk (1.4 miles), but mainly through old Pasadena neighborhoods with big, beautiful houses. Take the Metro Gold Line to the Del Mar Station in Pasadena. Turn right (west) onto Del Mar Boulevard, cross and turn left onto Orange Grove Boulevard. Turn right on Arbor Street, left onto Arroyo Boulevard, and look for the park entry on your right across from Norwood Drive. Walk down the entry road to the bottom of the hill.

Hi everyone, I've recently started a vegan food blog (mostly raw) with a touch of organic gardening and sustainable housing posts to come. I have some travel to California planned so I wanted to get it up and running before I leave. I look forward to connecting with some of you on my travels.

Anyone going to the wholesale produce market tomorrow (Wednesday) morning? I'm planning on heading up from OC with my old man around 10:30am. Hit me up if you're heading down there.

I can't tell you how great it is to hear that produce is cheap!! I spend about $70 a week, sometimes $50. If anyone sees this I have heard that finding a bar job is tough in LA and no one gives them up. I am looking for one. I work in hospitality and prefer the neighborhood bar scene.

The Los Angeles Produce District is public at no charge. When living in LA, I spent about $20 a week on produce there, sharing cases with my roommates.

Jessie, I am moving to LA next month and I searched far and wide for a cheap apartment.  I have always lived about 70 miles east of LA so now going to big city for a great job offer I could not turn down.   Good luck!  Cheapest 2 bedroom I could find in a decent area is in Pasadena 1350 a month.  Fruit and veggies are super cheap though! So no worries there!

I'm also looking for work.
