The Emerson-Garfield Farmers’ Market launched its second season on Friday, June 6.
Plenty of returning vendors were on hand, plus there were some very popular new ones, such as Project Hope’s Riverfront Farm and The Scone Ranger. In the music department, E-G’s very own Spokaloo was a big hit too.
Here’s a sampling of photos, taken by EGNC Vice Chair and head of our Neighborhood Planning initiative, Megan Kennedy:
