Fishers Farmer's Market Opening Day - May 3

I am very excited - our Farmer's Market will be opening in a week!

We are big fans of our local market and go as many Saturdays as we can over the season.  When we visit other cities or towns, we like to discover new markets.  And our area offers markets that I would love to visit more often.

This year's vendors have some new offerings that I'm excited about.  I am going to have to make sure that I either bike or walk to the market so that I don't end up gaining 20 lb this summer!

Our farmers market also opening next weekend, and I'm so excited. I love wandering through and meal planning based on what is in all the booths. And also, it feels like the start of summer when the farmers markets are up and running, so I love them for that reason too.

My favorite thing is that it's open year-round!! This is a great coincidence; yesterday I just posted my list of tips for first-time market shoppers. I had a feeling you northerners were finally going to have markets opening soon!
