Instead of heading to the market next time you need fresh produce, take a trip to Aberdeen's farmers market. Every Friday from 3 p.m. until 7 p.m., Festival Park across from Aberdeen City Hall is full of vendors selling local goods and families having a good time. “Aberdeen wanted its citizens to grow local, buy local,” says Felicia Bledsoe, a spokesperson for the city of Aberdeen. “It helps the small business out, and you can always be sure there will be fresh vegetables, delicious homemade snacks, handmade products and other items each week.” Aberdeen's farmers market began in May and will run until October.

With all the time and effort devoted to the new downtown for Columbia, many good ideas and plans have resulted. I hope similarly good plans for Symphony Woods will result from the stakeholder discussions, hearings and multistep approval process currently ongoing. As a seven-year homeowner here, I have not figured out how to "officially" air an idea for the new downtown/Symphony Woods, which heretofore I've not heard raised: I've spent some time in Durham, N.C., and witnessed firsthand the substantial benefits of the farmers market operating each weekend from April through September in its own, unelaborate but well-sized, purpose-built pavilion constructed in their downtown.

Community leaders and residents believe that more fruits and vegetables will help the Oakland Mills Village Center grow strong and healthy. Summer corn, ripe tomatoes, fresh blueberries and juicy watermelons on sale at a new weekly farmers' market will add to revitalization efforts in the village by "really bringing vibrancy to the community center," said Sandy Cedarbaum, village manager for the Oakland Mills Community Association. The new market opens this week at the village center and will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesdays through Nov. 21.
