San Pedro Farmers Market @ Downtown San Pedro
Jun 21 @ 9:00 AM – 2:00 PM

Historic Downtown San Pedro is just steps away from the waterfront and features a collage of architecture, shopping, dining, art, entertainment and browsing. With its small town atmosphere and many family-owned businesses, Historic Downtown San Pedro reminds many of the neighborhood of their youth.

A wonderful time to experience Historic Down Town San Pedro is on every Friday of the month when the Local Harvest Farmers’ Market is open between 9:00 am until 2:00 pm. Every Friday is unique at this event with local musicians performing while you shop for Certified California Grown farm fresh fruits, vegetables, plants and flowers. You can also enjoy fresh hot fare from one of our many vendors, gourmet specialty foods and treats along with shopping for that special something from one of the arts & crafts vendors.

What People Are Saying about Angie’s Classes

“I was totally a beginner, but made to feel quickly at ease. Angie makes you feel so welcome & is so encouraging. What a kind spirit she has.”

“I had a great time. Wonderful energy from Angie. The marine layer, lit by the Sun, seemed like an energy blanket supporting our practice. There was an ethereal quality to the scene echoing East Asian landscape paintings. The gentle and patient teaching from Angie was great. Had a great day afterwards and have told several friends about this gem of a class, teacher and location.”

“My first ever Tai Chi instruction was the best. Angie is a patient and wonderful teacher. She explains the moves in an unhurried way so you get to practice each one and then puts them all together. I was very comfortable and it was the best day I’ve had in months. The members are all friendly and I loved that Angie took out time to share so we could get to know one another. This is the class I’ve been waiting for and can hardly wait for the next one. The rest of my day was full of energy and an overall feeling of peace and wellness. Thank You, Angie. You’re a phenomenal teacher and kind spirit. Namaste”

“Angie is very skilled at her love. You can tell her focus within her teaching. I wouldn’t go without a donation. She deserves a contribution as a thank you no matter what the price.”
