Very nice farmers market clean no garage laying around. I think their veggies and other items are on the expensive side. There's a good amount of venders that attend. Something to do for a morning walk.

I've just now received this question. I'm sure by now you've figured out the answer to your question. At least I would HOPE you did. Sorry about the timeliness - it's not of my doing.
