Well hello March! The jury is still out on whether or not it’s nice to see you again. But on the bright side, we are only TWO months away from Opening Day! Soon, spring will be here with a new variety of products such as flowers, plants, and even asparagus. Until those days arrive, be sure to check out the amazing variety that is offered by our Second Season vendors! Try something new! Grab that black Spanish radish! Go for that celeriac! Not sure what to do with your root veggie? Ask your farmer for recipe suggestions! Choosing to cook your meals, especially with local ingredients, allows you to control what you buy and where your food comes from, which encourages better food to be produced in the marketplace. No matter what your plans are for the weekend, be sure to stop by the Market and support the local vendors who show up, snow or shine, to provide you with the best and most nutritious food in town. Nourish not only your body, but your community, and relationships at home, by shopping at the farmers market.

Take a look at the list below to see which products will be available tomorrow! If you are wondering WHO will be at the market, take a look at our ROLL CALL on our Facebook or Instagram! The market is open for Second Season on Saturdays 10AM-1PM now through April 24, 2021.
