This farmers market is truly a farmers market with produce, both fruits, and vegetables.  However, certain things are just now going in the ground, while others will follow later.  This means stuff won't be sprouting and available early on.  That's why this market opens in July and stays open til the first frost.  The market will be open on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays at 7 am.  The Golden Spread Farmers Market is located in the parking lot of Sunset Center on Plains Blvd.
