Eagle Rock Music Festival!

Tomorrow, October 2, is the 12th annual Eagle Rock Music Festival!  From 4pm to 11pm Colorado Blvd. will be shut down and people will be roaming the streets listening to great music. 

The festival is set up on Colorado Boulevard between Eagle Rock Boulevard and Argus Drive.  There will be free parking and a shuttle service at the Eagle Rock Plaza.

There is a suggested donation of $5, but no one will be turned away.

This is a great Eagle Rock event, and I hope you make it out there!  For up to date information, including a list of bands and set times, visit Center for the Arts.

Fresh and Easy Donating to Local Groups

Love it or hate it, Fresh and Easy has been taking Southern California by storm.  In the last year Tesco has opened over 30 Fresh and Easy locations in the Los Angeles area offering "a simple shopping experience with everything you need right in the neighborhood."

Besides budget prices for quality products, Fresh and Easy is also billing itself as the "good neighbor," recruiting from the local area and using low-energy lighting and equipment.

As part of being a good neighbor, Fresh and Easy is offering a $1,000 donation to a group from the neighborhood where a store is being opened or celebrating its one-year anniversary.  Anyone from the neigbhorhood can nominate a group on the Fresh and Easy website, which you can reach by clicking here.  Recent donations include high school football teams, children's theater groups, and wildlife organizations.

Here is what Fresh and Easy says:

"When we first opened your store, we invited you and your neighbors to nominate a non-profit group from the local community. From these nominations, the store staff selected a charity to receive a $1,000 donation.

We do this with every store we open because we care about our neighborhoods and the people who live there.

As stores reach their one-year anniversary, we are doing it again. Anyone can nominate a local neighborhood group and the store will decide who receives another donation. It is just another way for us to say "thank you" for your support."

Do you know of a group in the Eagle Rock/Highland Park/Glassell Park area that could use $1,000?  Go online and take advantage of Fresh and Easy's good neighbor policy!

Check out the Eagle Rock Farmer's Market!

The Eagle Rock Farmer's Market has been around for almost 9 years, can you believe it? It's had its ups and downs that included pony rides, Elvis impersonators, fresh pressed apple juice, inexpensive clothing, incense, and the balloon clown. Today's market includes a fast food row with Latino, Filipino, and American style foods like hot dogs, horchata, chicken and pork skewers. There is always the Farmer's Market Table run by John and Sueann Miller on behalf of Michael Noguiera and the Chamber of Commerce. And there is good, fresh produce in season. Right now you can enjoy strawberries, plums, peaches, grapes, all kinds of greens, mushrooms, eggplant, tomatoes, zucchini, herbs, and lettuce. The orchid lady is there with several varieties of orchids at slightly higher than Trader Joe's prices. Every week brings a slightly different cast of vendors, so this week there was another garden booth selling small pots of other plants.
