    The bulk edible flowers are amazing in a light spring/summer broth or salad, and the price/quality is considerably better than what you'd find at a grocery store

    Great selection of local produce and goods. Challenge: make your next few meals using only sourced local goodies from the market.

    HOT TIP: Pen ultimate Blue state faux pas? Forgetting to bring reusable bag to Farmer's market. As punishment, must engage in discussion about either Proust or David Sedaris while drinking merlot.

    Oh, and people - I love dogs, but KEEP THEM ON A SHORT LEASH. It's too crowded to have to dance around and jump over leashes in your path to avoid getting clotheslined.
