Last week was the Market's best-attended week yet, no doubt helped along by sunshine, the appearance of strawberries and blueberries and the continued presence of asparagus, and an awesome sculpture workshop led by Urbana's Public Arts Program.
This week: We'll have more strawberries, more blueberries (come early), lots of other late spring produce, partly cloudy & warm weather, and visitors like The Urbana Free Library and Illinois Public Media. Illinois Public Media's theme this month is "Young Learners", and they're offering a Market-wide scavenger hunt. Bring the kids!
I'd also like to direct your attention to this:
That's right - it's the Market's rooster in bike rack form! The City has added 40 new bike parking spaces just west of the Market's lot. You can't miss them - there are four decorative U-racks and a host of shiny black ones. Hitch your ride to one of these and your bike will be safe (and close by!) while you're in the Market.
See you out there!
