This will be the third market opened by the nonprofit Sprouts of Promise Foundation, which aims to educate both children and adults on the importance of healthy eating habits with an emphasis on the benefits of locally sourced fruits and vegetables.

Other Spouts of Promise Farmers' Markets can be found in Newport Beach and Playa Vista.
