Old Town Farmers Market: Sweet Tastes, Live Cooking Shows, and Exotic Vegetables

Take, for instance, the produce offerings. Ask any frequenter - McClendon's Select is the top dog at the Old Town Market. They've got several varieties of almost any seasonal, organic vegetables and fruits, and they bring seemingly bottomless baskets of the stuff that nearly sell out across six check-out stations. But as big of an operation as they are, a shadow remains to be cast over other rockstar vendors, notably Maya's Farm for colorful carrots and plump beets, or Blue Sky Farms that carry not only staple vegetables, but a collection of the exotic - peacock kale, rapini, red chard - and a range of root vegetables that will spice up (better yet, replace) your next dish of mashed potatoes.
