Most abundant and varied farmers market I’ve ever seen!

Wow, they close off a lot of streets to bring in a ton of vendors! I’m only in town for the weekend, but I bought some fabulous fresh fruit, a gorgeous bouquet of organic flowers, and three very reasonably priced jars of raw nut butter. There were sellers of fine tchotchkes and jewelry, my girlfriend got coffee, her sister bought baked goods, and we all enjoyed walking around checking it out.

Yes, also vendors selling dismembered body parts. Gross.

Pros: Gorgeous, Abundant, Vibes

Cons: Dead animals for sale

Getting the Greens

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.

Apples and Potatoes?

I enjoyed the numerous friendly vendors, at least three selling apples, but was disappointed to find mostly meat-selling: three vendors with beef, two with sheep, one elk, many with pig. There were two bread vendors. Not a good time of year for greens or veggies (except for potatoes and carrots).
