This is definitely one of the best farmers markets in the city. Lots of vendors with a decent variety of offerings. They also offer demos and workshops on some dates, which can make your experience more of an event rather than just grocery shopping. Try and get there early - hoards of families come through and usually bring large strollers with them - it can be frustratingly crowded and difficult to manage by 11am. Also, the offerings are slimmer the later you go so set the alarm and make the trip early! There are booths with coffee and breakfast offerings (like the apple cider donut holes pictured below) to help 7am feel a bit better!
