The Glendale Farmers Market is now located in the parking lot of First Baptist Church on the corner of Louise Street and Wilson Avenue.

It’s expanded to about 35 vendors and is away from traffic on Brand Boulevard, where it was formerly located north of Broadway.

Also, the market, which opens at 9 a.m. every Thursday, now has restroom access.

The move was made after the market’s management was taken over by the Downtown Glendale Assn., which had concerns about traffic, parking and access for the disabled at the former location, where it had been for several years.
