Mariachis to make room for Boyle Heights Farmers’ Market

The organizers of a Boyle Heights Farmer’s Market announced today they have received the final permits needed to open a market at the Mariachi Plaza Gold Line station.  About 25 vendors have been signed up for the market’s  debut on Friday, July 9. The market, which will operate every Friday,  will be open from 3 PM to 8 PM.

The idea for a Boyle Heights Farmers’ Market had been discussed for several years when cafe owner Juan Romero took up the cause. He spent three months to secure permits and finalize an arrangement with the Metropolitan Transit Authority to operate the first farmers’ market at a Metro train stop.
