Opening day at the East Van Farmer's Market

It's officially summer for me now that the East Van Farmers' Market has started.

Saturday's inaugural market took place in our unusually warm and sunny May weather.

The vendors change every year and every week (here's the official vendor list) and there's always something new but the vibe remains the same. People getting out of the house to get real food that hasn't been overly processed or shipped thousands of miles.

Here are some of East Van Farmers Market opening day photos:

The cool sign:

Jay Springs Lamb (free range and grass fed) - new to us but probably not new to the market!
