Columbia Heights farmers market starts May 4, MtP market already going

Mount Pleasant Farmers Market 

The weather is nice, which means among other things (patio bars, for example) it also means it's farmers market time!

Mount Pleasant's market (pictured) is already up and running, starting last weekend. They're open from 9am-1pm on Saturdays, and I've always liked it. You can grab some food for meals, some fruit and then head across the street to Heller's bakery for some breakfast and coffee. Plus there's occasionally random bands that will set up and play, which is always fun. They're located at the Lamont triangle park at Mt. Pleasant Street and Lamont.

And our very own market, the Columbia Heights Community Marketplace, will be starting up in a couple weeks: May 4 is their first day. The market, which has a lot of farmers, bakers, cheese and sausage makers and other artisanal food types, also has crafters and other fun stuff. They're also open on Saturdays from 9-1 at the Columbia Heights Civic Plaza at 14th/Park/Kenyon.

Does anyone know why the CH Farmer's Market opens so late? It can't be because nothing is in season if the Mt. P market is already going. Is it a financial issue?
