San Pedro Public Market
The San Pedro Public Market is envisioned to become an environmentally sensitive and sustainable urban environment -- a vibrant, family-friendly shopping, dining, entertainment and recreational themed destination that will bring jobs, renewed economic vitality, and business opportunities to San Pedro and the LA Waterfront.
