At Last! Lexington Farmers Market Opens for 2010
It was hard to wait. Hard imagining the growers might be anxious about the failure to complete the Market's new location on time. Hard to do without the eggs/greens/potatoes/conversations even the slender winter market provided until three weeks ago.
But it was easy to get up early and watch the 2010 Lexington Farmers Market set up in temporary spaces on Short and Upper Streets. It was easy to find beautiful food. Easy to find laughter and conversation. Easy to feel a debt of gratitude to the growers who got up at 2:30 this morning to make their way to the center of Lexington and set up truckloads of tables, tents, equipment, and products for sale.
