The Oak Park Farmers Market isn't a quite a sport. There aren't teams facing off in a battle for supremacy.
But every Saturday through October, there are at least two sets of winners at the OPFM: The farmers who get a little profit off their hard labor and the market goers who get fresh produce from the folks who were directly involved in the harvest.
That's why I'm so excited to have a prime seat for this year's opening day, helping staff the Farmers Market booth at the main entrance at the Pilgrim Church parking lot.
I'm signed up for the morning shift - before the doughnut line rounds the corner - so stop by and say hello if you get a chance.
