Also, The Motor Avenue Farmers Market has developed an urban garden program! With this program, our intent is to promote the health, synergy, and self-reliance of this local community. The program will have many specific and measurable benefits to our community and we strongly encourage your involvement in whatever capacity you see yourself fitting in! The program features a total of five gardens (with room for more), three located at local school campuses and two along Motor Ave.
To check out our urban garden program or additional information about the market, vendors and recipes, go to http://www.motoravenuemarket.com. You can also visit our facebook for events and special deals!
We look forward to seeing you at the market!
Motor Avenue Improvement Association
MAIA works to improve the Motor Community in the Palms area, one of the most population-dense areas in Los Angeles and the United States, as well as its adjacent boundaries. MAIA will work to maintain and enhance appearance and safety, as well as create programs that will benefit and serve the entire neighborhood. Through this, MAIA hopes to assist business and residential interests, enhance the walkability and business climate of the area, mitigate traffic issues, enforce existing building and safety guidelines for development, and help our neighbors resolve problems, when possible.
Recognizing that the MAIA is part of a larger interconnected community, it is important to support our fellow homeowner associations, neighborhood councils, city council offices, local police and firefighters, and other stakeholders in pursuing regional traffic and infrastructure solutions.
