griffith-central-marketRepublic Services will hold their annual Spring Clean Up on Friday May 30th (Due to Memorial Day Holiday that week). This allows residents to place an unlimited amount of trash out for collection. However tires, concrete, roofing shingles and hazardous materials will not be accepted. As stated above, all refuse must be contained or bundled weighing no more than 50 pounds.

What started as a simple idea eventually morphed into a reality. Griffith Central Market is a fusion of great entertainment and well prepared, delicious foods; a collection of artisan beers and hand crafted wares. Its about taking the ubiquitous and making it extraordinary. The region is rife with gifted musicians ribboning through an equally impressive community of artists. It is our mission to bring these talented individuals into the market throughout the season. We are dedicated to showcasing this vast array of artisanship for our entire guests that find their way into this fabulous experience. Griffith Central Market is located in the tree lined beauty of Griffiths Central Park and is open most Fridays through October 10th from 3PM to 8PM. Music begins at 6PM. The music is free, the atmosphere is electric and the offerings are wonderful. Its Griffith Central Market. You dont want to miss it!
