The market’s season started June 4 and includes 10 farmer and artisan vendors like Muggerz BBQ, which sells authentic barbecue products and The Freshmobile, offering handcrafted Peruvian limeade mixed with fresh herbs and spices. Visitors can also find creative recipes, like lemon cheesecake mousse or English pea risotto, online or at the market’s information booth for inspiration.

The rally will be followed by a Pridemobile Parade featuring a string of colorful automobiles for viewers to enjoy.
