Great Opening Day for Lake City Market
The Lake City Farmers Market returned yesterday (June 6th) and we look forward to it running from now until October 3rd. Every Thursday from 3pm to 7pm you can enjoy a variety of wonderful prepared foods and all kinds of goodies in addition to an array of fresh produce and cut flowers. It was great to see so many neighbors come out. Build Lake City Together looks forward to providing community information and talking with you throughout the season at our weekly booth. Albert Davis Park was alive with families enjoying their market treasures and enjoying what turned out to be perfect weather. With buskers, community coming together and activities for families it was heartening to see our market return.
