Gigi's Farmers Market @ The Americana at Brand (photos)

We went yesterday to the grand opening, or first day of Gigi's Farmers Market at The Americana at Brand.
Gigi's Farmers Market, feels like a specialty market, they had the highest quality produce, and the setting is beautiful. There were not that many vendors, but nothing was missing, they had plenty to choose from. A little bit of everything, with a big variety of great looking produce, organic produce, beautiful flowers from Cho's Flowers, very tasty pastries, excellent baguettes, and much more.
Frida's Mexican Restaurant has a taco stand at the market, we ate a couple of Chicken Mole Tacos and they were very good.
Overall a great farmers market, everything was spotless, and all the vendors were very friendly. Plenty of parking.
Saturdays 1am to 2pm.

    1. 1AM to 2 PM ... Right after midnight to the afternoon? Sounds great!

      1. ~ Gigi's Farmers Market plans to be open every Saturday from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.
        The information above 1am to 2pm is obviously a typo. Sorry for the inconvenience,

          I should have put a smilie on that. I knew it was a typo but would have loved the hours you typed [being a night owl].

          Thanks for the great report. I can't wait to check it out. :)

        2. Ok, those photos convinced me. I'll have to make a trip over there one Saturday very soon. Thanks for the post!

          1. That is really exciting. This could become a Saturday tradition. I am not crazy about the Americana, but my DH is and this could turn me aorund.
