Saturday was the first day of the new season for the Lane County Farmers' Market and the Saturday Market.  It was a typical early April day - cool, with bit of sunshine, some clouds, a few showers, and a small hail storm.  Something for everyone!  
I was glad to be back at the Market.

There was musical entertainment...

...and wonderful food!
I had a Beef Rib Scramble with greens, cheese and caramelized onions, and Polenta Cakes from Field to Table!
Oh, so very good - all products locally sourced from the Market.

Lots of tempting starts for the Gardener - herbs, and vegetables, and annuals. 
Lots of fresh, cool weather produce to buy.

Lovely Spring bouquets...

Still more greens...

...and early spring radishes. 
It was a great way to spend the morning!

Ooh, what a lovely little bunny you've stitched! And thanks for the market pics, they're wonderful. I haven't been here (or anywhere in Blogland) for a while, so I don't know if your header is new, but it's fabulous and nice and spring-y!

I envy you your Farmer's Market - not much around here except for a couple of weeks mid summer.
