Downtown Sprouts Farmers Markets

Apparently they've been doing it since at least May, but it wasn't until yesterday that I discovered the Farmers' Market at Bank of America Plaza (Hope north of 4th). The outdoor plaza space actually lends itself very well to the event, with vendor tents wrapping around a circular walkway. The number of vendors and the crowd turnout both seemed very healthy.

It's getting hard to keep Downtown's farmers' markets straight these days, with the itinerant Arts District market (now at City Hall, I believe?), the market by the library, this one up on the hill and a few other smaller ones tucked into spaces here and there. If you don't happen upon them you're likely to not even know they're there.

Update (Monday): Over the weekend Celia posted a round-up of times and locations for the Downtown markets.
