Market open on Saturday from 9 a.m. - noon
Spring is right around the corner, but so is the Farmer’s Market. Despite yesterday’s snow and cold, those seeking a little bit of summer in their week can head over to Crocker Park’s North Union Farmers Market Indoor Winter Market for fresh grown veggies and interesting finds. “It’s indoors at Crocker Park through March 16, from 9 a.m. – noon,” General Manager Emma Anderson said.

The weather was blissful, sunny and 72 degrees at 10:30 a.m. Everyone was short-sleeved and happy, browsing among the two dozen or so tables enjoying samples and conversation with eager merchants.

From tree planting to local veggies to organic lawn care, there are simple ways we can make changes to our daily lives to reduce our carbon footprints.
Earth Day is upon us, providing the ideal time for us to commit to making this big blue-and-green planet on which we live a better place. Start by implementing one (or all) of these great ideas into your life to make it a bit greener. Plant a tree.

For tips on what types of trees would fare best in your space, look to the helpful folks at Gale's Garden Center. Stay local. The North Union Famers Market at Crocker Park held its grand opening for the …
