This market, in its first month (the first market was January 8th) grew out of demand for locally available produce during the winter months has a great location and a very nice variety of goods to purchase. with so many great vendors on tap for this market some of them rotate which weeks they will be at the market.
Here's what Gail & I got at the market this weekend:
