    Market master Steve Evankow and the LFM, Inc. board have worked hard all winter to revitalize the market. as a result, we will open with a full field of vendors. Your favorites will be back, plus some new seasonal and guest vendors. As usual, parking is free and plentiful. See you on the field!
