Shopping the first farmers' market

The farmers' market opened on May 2. There were several vendors there, though they were not selling much food. I noticed that the basswood trees on the court house lawn had their leaves. They did not for the arbor day tree walk.
A vendor who was selling food was offering freezer beef. I do not think he had any on hand but was only taking orders. Another vendor had dried flowers.
There were several vendors with flats of plants for your garden or yard.
Another also had some house plants.
I was on the lookout for rhubarb, and saw some.
Although there was not much at this first farmers market, the selection of items does get better and bigger as the season goes on.
