First Farmers Market of 2009

Saturday May 2nd was opening day at the Oxford Farmers Market and here are some pictures from the day. Despite the rainy forecast, the day turned out to be beautiful. Sunny and not too warm

The market around 8am. It was pretty slow early on, but things picked up later on and we ended up selling out of almost everything

Joel Parks, opening day's Chef at Market took advantage of the light crowds and bountiful harvests to shop for his cooking demo that was held later in the market. Here he and Brent Marcum of Salem Road Farm talk about produce

People talking to Larry Slocum, the market manager, about renewing their Friends of the market membership

Calamity Rain played live acoustic folk music

Lucy, just randomly found your blog and I’m sure I’ll be back to visit. I graduated from Miami and spend several summers in Oxford in the 90s. I remember the farmers market well. There used to be a lady who sold peanut butter pies … I ate many of them. Great memories!
