  • Finally, a farmers market for those of us that can’t get out of bed before 2 PM!

    Arguably, we need fresh produce the most.

  • See name.

  • Can’t wait. So very excited!

  • Curious. I’m new to the neighborhood (and happy to have any sort of Farmer’s Market) but the day/time seem odd. Anyone know why it’s Friday evening when most people are at Happy Hour or (chumps like me) still at work instead of being on the weekend?
    I imagine they’d get more people on the weekend, but I could be wrong….
