  • I hope they have more vendors this year selling on-site lunch items. Loved the sausuge vendor last year. If they had more options, I bet a ton of people would go there for lunch – not just to shop for veggies. Sandwiches (deli), Mexicam, Greek etc.

      That’s not really a farm market though. Too many of those and a lot of us wouldn’t bother with it any more.
