The day started off a bit chilly this past Saturday, but it warmed up nicely at the market. We even saw a couple of people with shorts on! It must have been all of those tell-tale signs of spring throughout the market that made that happen, like the plant starts for gardens from Paradise Produce and the happy colors of little Dutch iris and buttercups from Blooming Meadows. And those massive ferns from Purple Tree Farm had everyone thinking about prettying up their porches for the warm weather. Lots of new Franklinites came to the market for the very first time and some out-of-town folks too, including a family from Hawaii. So all in all, it was a pretty good day at the market.
And with warmer weather, things really start jumping at the Franklin Farmers Market with special days and events. In fact, we’ll kick off the summer season in May with a special day that will make your taste buds oh-so-happy. Details are coming soon!
Finally, there was a little confusion this past Saturday about when the market opens and when it closes. All through the month of April, the market will open at 8am and close at noon. That gives the early birds a chance to get in and out of the market quicker but for you socializers, it’s an extra hour to eat good food and have good conversations while shopping at the market.
