SAINT PAUL - It's another sure sign of Spring as the St. Paul Farmers' Market opens this weekend after being delayed a week because of weather. The market was originally scheduled to open last Saturday.
St. Paul Farmers' Market Director Jack Gerten says, to his knowledge, it's the first time opening day has been delayed since the market opened in 1852. Gerten says the delay was to prevent the cold from damaging flowers, plants and other products that customers purchase. "Rather than just make sales, we want to make sure our customers are happy so we wanted to wait for the warmer weather to get here," he says.
KARE 11's Bryan Piatt has more on what to expect and how the opening of the new St. Paul Saints stadium next door will affect the farmer's market.
