This "rustic"establishment is located in the foothills of the San Gabriel mountains amidst of series of narrow winding roads. It is situated in a community reminiscent of a 60s commune. The "Market" consists of faux antiques, bottled beverages, chips, and candy. There is also pet food. In fact there is more pet food in the market than people food. The... More

Half the fun of going to Mary's Market is the drive up there. It is a good thing we have a GPS now days. The area is beautiful and the place is rustic. The food was good and the people are nice. A nice lunch with the grandsons.

I'm really not sure how to rate this place. It's obviously a favorite with locals. We were there when we were famished (and therefore not very picky!) and still thought the food was only OK. The woman who ran the front was very pleasant and professional. I overheard that the couple who appear to be running it are new owners... More

Mary's is the place to go if you're a local in Sierra Madre. Hidden in the canyon, this non-assuming diner/convenience store cum de facto museum is a step back in time to no era in particular, which is why it appeals to everyone. From families to bikers to old hippies, Mary's exudes warm and welcome in a casual setting. It... More

While visiting Pasadena, my husband surprised me by taking me to breakfast at Mary's Market. When we were driving up narrow Woodland Drive, I wondered what the ....? We parked in the lot across from the market and upon entering, it was like going back in time! Carolyn, the owner, is charming and interesting. Heather is sweet and efficient. We... More

Mary's is a rare treat in this part of the world. Nothing presumptuous here just friendly and willing service and the option of playing an entertaining hand of cribbage with the proprietor Caroline. Her staff with Heather heading them up could not be nicer. Menu is super freshly prepared in a great meeting house for locals and visitors alike. I... More

I've lived in town since 1966 and the market has always been here. Really caters to the canyon people and the food they offer is super yummy. Taco Tuesday has always been superb. Great little area to cruise around if your not familiar with this small town .

Great freshly made food. very reasonable. Nostalgic feel - Marys has been around a long time. Antique photos are everywhere. Lots of places to walk. You feel like you are in a mountain community and yet its five minutes from town. They often have entertainment to go with your Sunday breakfast.

We ended up wandering in the Sierra Madre Woodland Drive neighborhood for the first time this weekend. Recommendations for lunch at Mary's were in but we were reminded to bring cash. She had a B.L.A.S.T. and a I had a burger that reminded me of burgers mom or grandma had made in the past. The screen door, the house rules,... More

I absolutely LOVE this place! Such a local treasure tucked away in the canyon. It can be a little hard to get there, but it's absolutely delicious!
