Produce stand

The coolest new thing in Greenwood this week is the new farmer's market/produce stand that has opened downtown.

I am excited about fresh food, more availability, and meeting the growers. First day I bought peaches and snow peas. If I knew what to do with kale, I would have bought some.

There is a fairly big controversy about relocating the current farmer's market on Wednesdays and Saturdays from the old Civic Center area to uptown Greenwood. I'm not sure which side of that I'm on yet, but I do love the idea of MORE places to get local produce. The uptown location is fairly cramped already and hugs a busy/noisy train track.

The Saturday market opens June 4th, but it may be the 8th before I can check it out. Plus I've heard you have to get there early, and I'm not much for 7 or 8 a.m. on a Saturday. We'll see.
