Getting the Greens
Posted on 05 / 17 / 2009
Lovely place, always so enjoyable seeing caring consumers walking around with their reusable bags! Wide selection of fresh vegetables during the summertime, a little more sparse during the winter( just about only root veggies) means you have to get creative if you depend on the market as I do for my homemade meals! The vegetables can be a little pricey(especially for poor college students :P), but if you buy during the right time in the season you can get a great deal! Wonderful atmosphere and an overall friendly community that offers not only produce but several kiosks with homemade items(socks,soaps,syrups) and baked goods! (including a quaint little vegan stall that I am hypnotically lured to every time, I never stand a chance of resisting D:) I'll tell you, I am always a bit disturbed that the rooster(rumored to be named Achilles) who comes along with his farmers seems to face the meat stalls! There are more meat and dairy stalls than I would prefer. They seem to almost equal the number of veggie stands! It's actually at the Riverfront Park during May-October, and in the Atrium from October-May.
