Promises of Spring

Today is the first day of February, the shortest month of the year and the one that brings two of the earliest intimations of spring. The first happens tomorrow, on Groundhog Day, when we look to a rodent prognosticator--Marmota monax--to emerge from its den and tell us how much more winter we will have to endure. 

The second happens on Saturday, when the Indoor Farmers Market returns, and friends and neighbors emerge from their post-holiday hibernation to reassure themselves that there will be spring and another growing season.

The market is open from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m., at Hudson Lodge, 601 Union Street, offering meats, eggs, cheeses, nuts, breads, baked goodies, savories, potatoes, root vegetables, and more. The indoor market continues every Saturday until May, when the market moves to its regular fair weather location at Sixth and Columbia streets.
