Signs of life at farmers' market

Today I spotted a promising sign. I saw it while in Monument Square picking up my pre-ordered veggies (including the world's most-amazing-pickles-ever) from Simon Frost at Thirty Acre Farm. Right next to him a farmer from Sumner, Maine had set up a tent with a display of eggs and meat. I haven't seen tents in the square since November. He told me he plans to come down each Wednesday, provided the weather stays mild. Simon said he might start doing the same.

Right now it's pretty slim pickings for veggies: carrots, potatoes, shallots, sauerkraut and kim chi. (By some miracle I scored the last jar of pickles.) But in the Public Market House, Horton's has amazing salad greens from Laughing Stock Farm.
