The LDTFM is a diverse and exciting place to get fresh vegetables, herbs, fruits, locally raised meat and dairy, and so much more. Some of my favorite things I've gotten from the market over the years include fresh oyster mushrooms, delightfully weird plants for my garden (including- wormwood? How Victorian!), and of course watermelons the size of a large child.

In the past, many items have gone quickly and early: I never once woke up in time for fresh eggs. My loss. One more word of advice- don't forget to hit up the food trucks while you're there for an awesome breakfast/brunch.
