New farmers market

Bittermelons A new downtown farmers market opened today on 1st Street, right on the lawn next to City Hall.

Filling the stalls are heirloom tomatoes, plums and pluots, zucchini blossoms, eggplant, shishito peppers and bitter melons -- both Indian and Chinese (pictured at left) -- and prepared foods such as baba ghanouj, marinated gigante beans and brown-rice-stuffed grape leaves. For lunch? Rotisserie chicken (a lot of them rotating on huge spits), Hawaiian chicken, shish kebabs and pupusas.

The market formerly was located at Weller Court on Tuesdays. Now, you might be more likely to run into the mayor.

City Hall farmers market, Thursdays, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., 1st and Spring streets.

that's three farmer's markets now in downtown. i hope the vendors don't get burnered out downtown and then have them all go away. wednesday's has been thinning out and friday's seems more robust, but how good is thursday's? are they attended?
