It's nice to have a farmers' market so close to where I live. I went at 12:30 today, and there were only a few vendors, but I expect the other vendors had already left. The ones who were there had some very nice looking produce — and very reasonably priced — as well as some beautiful local honey. I will certainly be going back.
