Now that May has arrived, so has the Farmer's Market just north of downtown Sioux Falls.

Every Saturday from May through October foodies get a chance to congregate at the Falls Park Open-Air Market from 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM to get their shop on.

I think some people still have this preconceived idea that the farmer's market is primarily produce and plants, but over the years it has evolved into something so much more than just that.

The Sioux Falls Open-Air Farmer's Market originally started all the way back in 1914 on Phillips Avenue as a way for area farmers to sell their produce to the public.

More recently the farmer's market at Falls Park has grown into a weekend event held every Saturday from the beginning of May through late October, that features a wide array of food items, produce, plants, pottery, flowers, knick-knacks, and even live music!

As Pigeon 605 reported recently, there are now 32 different vendors that participate in the farmer's market throughout the season and a rather lengthy list of musical artists and bands that entertain shoppers as well.

Chances are whatever you're in the market for, you'll be able to find it at the downtown Sioux Falls Open-Air Farmer's Market at Falls Park.

Here's just a sample of a few of the different vendors to help tantalize your tastebuds:

Breadico, Carper Sweet Corn & Produce, CH Patisserie, Cherrybean Coffee, Forrest's Fresh Peanut Butter, Heart of the City, Kettle King Kettle Korn, Monday's Macarons, Salas Salsas, Sinless Sweets, Skipping Stone Wood Fired Pizza, Uptown Sauce, and so many more!

And that doesn't even begin to describe all the non-food related vendors on hand every weekend too.

You can see a complete list of all the Falls Park Farmer's Market vendors here.
