    Come prepared with a bottle of water and bags to hold your purchases. On the east end, a guy sells watermelon slices which are juicy and refreshing, too!

    Expensive and crowded. I try to support local but I won't allow vendors to price gouge me.

    Buy the peanut butter! And the honey, then grab a wheat grass shot to freshen things up. Then mango on a stick, flavored popcorn, veggies for a farm-2-table dinner. End with fresh flowers for the home
