The first Chaska Farmer's Market appeared to be a big success yesterday at City Square Park.  From 3:00 to 7:00 pm dozens of vendors showcased their wares, including fresh flowers, homemade nut butters, olive oils, honey, bread, beverages, and even a few craft tables.  A smattering of vegetables was available, but as the weather warms up, even more local produce will ready for sale. According to the flower vendor, succulent snap peas should be at their prime next week. 

Many of these vendors are also the same people who offer their goods over the noon hour at the Carver County Government Center's Farmer's Market, as well.  So remember to stop by one of the venues every Wednesday.  Support your local businesses and eat healthy at the same time!
