We went and thought it was great. I was really glad to see so many people there (including DA Susan Reed!). I think they should spread it out a bit...it actually was kinda crowded. We were there around 9:30. We didn't get much, but didn't really need anything anyway. We just went to check it out so we'd know what to plan to get in the future.

The vendors there today were selling - veggies, fruit (though only strawberries, I think), jams/jellies/marinades (which were DELICIOUS!), shrimp, farm raised tilapia, bison, grass fed beef, eggs, nuts, a bunch of lavender stuff, and coffee.

Sounds so good! Was going to go but had some electrical issues at home so had to wait for electrician to come. This seems to be the kind of market I have been looking for,

This farmers market will probably grow by leaps and bounds once all the Pearl residential projects get built.

Like this one:

It's a mixed use development that was approved this week to begin construction. It'll feature residential units as well as office, retail and expansion room for the Culinary Institute of America.

Very nice! LF...who is the architect for these new buildings? Any floor plan drawings of the residence spaces?

We went also. I didn't see the eggs! I was there from about 11 - 12 so maybe they sold out. I really wanted to make deviled eggs with eggs from the Farmer's Market! Oh well We got some coffee, and some pecans. I can't wait until more fruits and veggies are in season. I did buy a couple of gifts from the store in the complex, I can't remember the name of it but they had some cool kitchen accessories. We'll be back!

I'll definitely be there on the grand opening on Saturday May 16th, 2009. I love markets and supporting local produce.

I hope it continues to grow, demand seems pretty high!

It will remain trinket- and souvenir-free, right? I can't wait to go check it out. Even my son is excited--he's been to farmer's markets (true farmer's markets) in California and Iowa, and he loved them!

My guess is YES!!!! yes to no trinkets that is. If Kit Goldsbury has anything to do with this...and he DOES in a BIG way, it will stay FIRST CLASS. Now he is a very big supporter of Mexican culture/art/antiques etc, so don't be surprised if you stumble on anything of this nature interspersed here and there. And just strictly guessing, it may not be "for sale" as much as decorative elements in some of the spaces around the complex.

We have a friend that has been involved in the project since day one. She met with the contractor who painted the restored brewery towers. He would spend days up on scaffolding hand painting the smallest details to retain the integrity of the original design. I LOVE it!!!

There is no way Kit Goldsbury will allow it to get trashed as long as he is part of it.
