The Blythewood Farmers Market opened to eager crowds Wednesday with a May Day Festival at Doko Meadows.

Farmers market fans shopped for fresh produce, home-baked breads and cakes, plants and flowers, locally produced meats and more while a live band entertained the crowd. Food trucks and an Italian ice stand served those wanting a quicker treat.

The Blythewood Farmers Market is a family-friendly community event that brings fresh and local produce directly to consumers. There is ample parking on site, and a nearby playground for children to enjoy.

The Farmers Market will be open 4-7 p.m. every Wednesday through October.
