The South Side Market in Fort Wayne opened on April 11 with a beautiful spring day, and a much larger than usual crowd for the first day of the season. I spoke to many new customers who were planning to start their first vegetable garden this year, and there was much excitement in the air. I even scored some of the season's first locally grown cucumbers, from the Fishburn's stand. They're growing them in a greenhouse, and they were sure tasty! I can't wait to see what they bring next.
I've got Seed Saver's Exchange seeds for sale, fresh herb plants that are hardy enough to plant now, and fresh flowers. On April 25, I'll have fresh salad greens for sale (the'll be ready this week, but I won't be at the market). I'll start bringing tomato and pepper plants on May 2.
This is going to be a great market season. Hope to see you there!
