For some Buckhead folks, spring doesn't officially arrive until the Peachtree Road Farmers Market opens. For them, the season hits full bloom this weekend.
The farmers market, which unfolds with a sumptious selection of products in the parking lot, opens for its sixth season from 8:30 a.m. until noon Saturday. It will remain open until Dec. 15, changing to a 9 a.m. start in the fall.
"Bring your own bell and noisemaker to help us open 2012 with a joyful noise," the farmers market said in a tweet at @PtreeFarmersMkt.
The market will open with Chris Hall of The Local Three presenting a chef demonstration at 10 a.m. The demos are presented each weekend at the same time. Hannah Onley will perform live music.
What's your favorite part of the farmers market? I like the pottery of John Page, the Renaissance Man, and the tamales. Let us know in Comments your special vendor or product.
