Locals enjoy going uptown on Fridays, in the morning and early afternoon (until 1 pm) for Farmer's Market. Vendors sell some exotic and always fresh vegetables and fruits here, as well as the crowd favorite kettle corn, nuts and gourmet breads.
Whittier Farmer's Market update (2011):
Everytime I go uptown, I see motorbikes, like these Harley Davidsons either parked or going up and down the cobblestone and tar. In and around hilly Whittier is a particularly fave for biker enthusiasts.
Here's a top view of the backside of Turnbull. Most MTB rider like to keep their favorite rides a secret so perhaps I should do the same and not mention this trail....
