This time of year the Farmers Market will probably offer vegetables such as lettuce, tomatoes, peppers, and onions. There may also be strawberries or blueberries. In addition, there is often freshly baked bread and pastries, and fresh meat.
In addition to the Farmers Market, we will first go to Shelter Gardens. This is a beautiful park filled with local plants and flowers. It also features a historic one-room school.
Meet at McReynolds Hall at 9:45 a.m. on Saturday. We will take the city bus to Shelter Gardens. You will need to bring $3.00 for an all-day bus pass. You will also need to bring money for anything that you want to buy at the market. We will walk from Shelter Gardens to the Columbia Farmers Market. We will catch the bus back to McReynolds at 12 or 12:30 p.m.
