City Hall farmers' market... weak sauce?

Maybe I was confused by the all the Celtic Pride things going on around the market and missed some stalls... but they only had one booth that had actual produce. Granted, that booth had strawberries(!) and snap peas, which I happily grabbed... but I was hoping for some more interesting greens than the lettuce we got this weekend. They did have plenty of potted herbs (my actual mission, but I was so dazzled by the strawberries I forgot) and had two bakeries running but not much else. Disappointment. I will keep checking it, but I was hoping for more.

UPDATE: The description I got e-mailed this weekend seems to suggest I missed something...
Get there early to catch some strawberries from Scott at Freitas Farm or fresh eggs from the happy hens at Silverbrook Farm. Both farms, along with Keown Orchards and Stillman's Farms also have tons of flower and vegetable plants to build your garden, and helpful farmers to guide your decisions. Stillman's also sells a variety of locally raised pork, beef, chicken, and lamb. Choose from three different bakeries for your breakfast, lunch, and snack cravings -- they're all delicious.
I'll head back on Wednesday to give it a more thorough look.
