One sure sign of spring is the opening of farmers' markets around northern Minnesota. The Grand Rapids Farmers' Market opened on May 10th for its 31st season. It is one of the earliest markets to open in the area, and 12 member/vendors were present. The morning was sunny and cool, but temperatures were supposed to hit 60 degrees--great weather for a market that sometimes sees snow in May!
