Pictures: Baltimore Farmers' Market: Week One report
The Baltimore Farmers' Market and Bazaar opened its 35th season -- the 28th under the Jones Falls Expressway -- on Sunday, April 1. Thousands of market-goers dropped by on opening day to peruse the early spring offerings from Maryland farmers and to re-acquaint themselves with their favorite vendors of savory and sweet prepared foods. Some folks came just to walk the oval circuit, to join in what has evolved into Baltimore's version of a Parisian's Sunday stroll on the Boulevard.

The crowds came
A steady stream of market-goers attended Opening Day of the 35th annual Baltimore Farmers' Market and Bazaar beneath the Jones Falls Expressway overpass at Holliday and Saratoga streets. This was the second year the market annual opened before Easter. Back in 1977, the first Baltimore Farmers' market opened in July.
