The list below is as up-to-the-minute as we can keep it. Today promises to be a great day. We've heard more and more people saying to each other, "See you Saturday at the market," or, in one case, "see you Saturday at the Greatest Show on Earth." This morning holds the promise of being one of the best ever - there'll even be coffee and breakfast items available at FM2 today by around 6:30am-6:45amCT. Remember - this is a Farmers Market - the vendors are here as long as they have something to sell, as long as the weather permits. So come early. Some listed items arrive with a very limited stock, other items, even with all the vendor can carry to the market, sell out very, very early. Here are some of the vendors you’ll find at this week’s market, as of 7:15amCT, Saturday morning. Keep watching, we expect more details
