I just learned there is one. It's on the Plaza, W side of Paca, between balto and Redwood. Limited as yet but two excellent vendors and two I didnt know
(Firefly farms!, Stone Mill bakery, a smoked salmon guy, and a veggie guy

Its open every Weds from 10.30 to 2.30. Great for those in the UMB or University hospital area.

    Actually it is on tuesdays. It is indeed very small: one fruit/vegetable vender, baked goods, eggs/dairy, some herb plants. Hopefully it will grow!

      Yes, a fledgling market, but quality stuff. Local strawberries finally made an appearance yesterday. I found some young garlic, rhubarb, chard, asparagus, kohlrabi...

      The salmon guy is nice, and I tried the salmon. Good stuff. (albeit pricey) Market has been there every Tuesday since it started May 5th.
