The selection and value are superior to a supermarket's. I like that most of the vegetables are fresh from a garden, grown without chemicals, and come in a wide array of unusual varieties. Frozen meat is also available, processed from animals (such as cattle, bison, sheep, goats, and emu) that are raised in small groups without a heavy reliance on medications or hormones to keep them healthy. This market also features many home-baked breads and pastries, wood and basketry crafts, worm composters, live music and clowns for the kids. Farmers and craftspeople are friendly and often enjoy sharing their knowledge and stories, too.
