RIBBON CUTTING AT 8AM:
Everyone is welcome under the balloon arch for a ribbon cutting by local officials and help to us usher in the new season. Huzzah!
Weather Forecast for Market Hours:
60s, cloudy & windy – we could get a drizzle toward noon.
Music on Opening Day! John Rossi and Dave Kelly will welcome everyone back for a great season!
What’s In Season:
You ready to fill your Market totes?! Greens are typically ready this early. Baby green, spinach, arugula, kale, chard, loads of tasty herbs and more. Bedding plants & seedlings available for your gardens. Farmers sell off their surplus vegetable plants – It’s an eagerly anticipated May “crop.” Come early for the best selection!
Opening Day Fun! After the ribbon cutting be sure to pick up a free opening day cookie (an apple-shaped cookie definitely counts as a nutritious breakfast) provided by DiBartolo Bakery. There will be facepainting and clay activities for kids and families, too!

Visit the Veggie Valet!
This service allows shoppers a spot to drop their purchases, pick up a claim check and continue to roam the market without lugging around their plants, produce and heavy bags. See the Veggie Valet tent (at headquarters!) for details.
Help us reduce plastic bags at the Market!
Remember! Leash-permits required for dogs at the Market.
To keep everyone safe:
- Dogs at the Market are required to wear a Market leash.
- The leash-permit is a onetime fee of $10, a portion of which goes to animal welfare agencies (you can use a leash from a previous year!)
- Dogs and handlers are expected to follow Market guidelines.
The goal of the program is to make the Market a safer place for our pets and our guests! Read full details regarding leash-permits here.
