We could hardly have hoped for better weather Saturday to kick off the 2010 Lawrence Farmers Market early season. The day was sunny, almost 50 degrees with a light breeze when the market opened at 7 a.m., and by closing time at 11, the temp was in the lower 70s.
Besides being the most pleasant opening day in memory for longtime vendors, I’d bet it also was the best attended, both in terms of customers and vendors. Although, as usual, many stalls were empty for the early season opening, I’d guess there were at least two dozen vendors selling a remarkable variety of goods.
If you weren’t there, head on down Saturday for bedding plants, prepared foods and, yes, fresh produce. Hail to spring! And thanks to our farmers’ being made of sturdier stuff than I am!
Addendum: The Topeka market opened Saturday too. Here’s information, in case you are interested, from the Topeka Capital-Journal.
