Here is a great interview from Bill Moyers on Farmers Markets
This is my favorite local market. It meets twice a week, Saturday mornings from 7 am to noon and Tuesday afternoons from 3 pm to 6 pm. You can find plenty of fresh seasonal fruits, vegetables and herbs, seedlings for your garden, fresh breads and pastries, jams, salsas, coffees, homemade soaps, jewelry, flowers, and sometimes art. Many of the vendors offer organic fare and Saturdays usually feature some sort of entertainment. Arrive early for the best of the best. Parking is no problem.
