The farmers and artisan food and craft vendors at Ashland Grower’s Market must have special ordered today’s sunshine for their first day at the Old Ashland Armory parking lot. Past years of opening day with snow and chilly rain were distant memories this morning as the colors of deep leafy greens, bright golden carrots, red tulips, and tender vegetable starts decorated the booths in the warm sun.
If you missed today’s event, be sure to check out the Medford Market on Thursday, and for other dates, market news and reminders visit the Rogue Valley Grower’s Market web site.
Here’s a little visual stroll down the Ashland Market promenade where everyone was all smiles, and the wholesome goodness of our local foods was beckoning the happy shoppers.
