After a long harsh winter, spring has arrived in the northeast, heralded by the return of farmers’ markets throughout the region.
The Farmers’ Market at Forest Park in Springfield, Massachusetts opened for a new season Tuesday afternoon with more than two dozen vendors and a steady stream of visitors.
Bill Malloy of Springfield bought basil and plants for his home garden.
" It's just super. It really convinces you that spring is here. Everybody is having a good time and you get to buy food too."
