Salisbury Farmers Market set to open Saturday

The 2012 Salisbury Farmers Market will be open for business at 7 a.m. Saturday, April 14.
The market is located at the corner of South Main and Bank streets in downtown Salisbury. The market can easily be located by the two large, green shade canopies where local producers will be selling local produce and meat, flowers, baked goods and local handmade crafts.
The market will operate two days a week, Wednesdays and Saturdays from 7 a.m.-noon.
The opening market of the spring will feature an array of locally grown cool season crops such as lettuce, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, asparagus, Swiss chard, spinach and other leafy greens and leaf lettuce and spinach are available. Because of the unusually warm weather strawberries will make an early appearance at the market. Bedding plants are always favorite supplying customers with vegetable transplants, herbs and flowering annuals. Baked goods, local meats and handmade crafts will also be a part of the 2012 Salisbury Farmers Market.
Visiting local growers is one of the benefits of this market. Growers enjoy sharing their knowledge about their crops and are eager impart information. Those that shop at the market should keep an open dialogue with vendors and growers to learn about future availability of produce and other crops. Growers also need input to help them determine future plantings. Many have recipes and cooking tips along with their produce. Now is a good time to establish a relationship with local growers.
Harry Agner returns as the market manager coordinating logistics of the market helping customers if necessary and enforcing market rules and guidelines.
