Private Zane Grey Estate in Altadena Hosting Underground Market

New, 3 comments

Today is full of news about places author Zane Grey has lived--following this morning's look at his house-turned-hotel on Catalina, we find out that the Altadena Urban Farmers Market, set on the grounds of the Zane Grey Estate in Altadena, may have sung its underground shopping swan song. Citing issues with permits and fees, the market says it may or may not continue on with its members only swap and shop Sunday market, run in partnership with the Arroyo Time Bank (where members swap time and skills). Shoppers have to complete a short membership form found on the market's Facebook page, but then can browse for everything from honey to hemp fashions at the Myron Hunt- and Elmer Grey- (no relation) designed estate, where author Grey lived from 1920 until his death in 1939. According to LA Weekly, the market, which had been operating with no official permits (but now has one), “was hardly a secret, which may be why they inevitably got a call from L.A. County.” Organizers hope to keep holding the AUFM on a monthly basis.
