Well, it's that time of year again. The time when people-watching in the City of Trees is at its best, buying local is at its easiest, and Saturday mornings are a lot less dull.
The Capital City Public Market will kick off Saturday, April 21, and the 2012 season will feature 140-160 farmers, artisans and local businesses that will line Eighth Street from Bannock Street to the Grove, and Idaho Street between Capitol Boulevard and Ninth Street. Every year, the market is the perfect place to stroll, mingle, pick up fresh produce and something unique for your home, and then head to lunch—and have pretty much the most-lovely Saturday mornings ever.
The market includes performances by local musical acts, a veggie valet service and token system, which enables attendees to use food stamps, as well as credit and debit cards.
The market runs from 9:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. every Saturday through December. For a list of vendors and more info, visit the website.
