Farmer's Market | Season Starts Sat. May 6th

I love the weekly farmer's market in Montpelier that runs from the beginning of May until the end of October. It's a great combination of social function and shopping trip. We always run into a few friends, have some food to eat, pick up some veggies, cheese, bread, etc and pick out a few plants.

Tomorrow, I'll be looking for a few starter plants for our garden. It's still too early to put tender starter plants like tomatoes in the ground. However, if I wait until the weather is right, all of the interesting varieties will be gone from the shelves. So, I'll pick up a few now and stick them in a sunny window for a few weeks.

I'm also looking forward to seeing what plants Boots, everyone's favorite socialist gardner, has in stock. I've had great success over the years with his perennials. So, I always make a point of checking out his stuff.

And what's a trip to the farmer's market without a freshly poured (from the tap) cup of Pop Soda. I know Bo is not vending at the market until the end of the year but I wonder if Tiny Meat will be there. See ya there.
