Opening day of the market (held in the museum's east parking lot) is Friday, after which it will be held on the third and first Fridays of each month through October.
The market is an extension of the museum's current exhibit, Smart Home: Green + Wired. Whether the museum keeps the market going after the exhibit's run depends on how things go this summer, a spokeswoman says.
Also good to know: This Friday and June 19 are free days at the museum. Culture and just-picked produce -- what more incentive do you need?
(And if you haven't checked out the museum's Web site in a while, as clearly we have not, you should. It'll bring out the inner 3rd-grade science geek in you. Like this little instructional photo gallery of how to cook food using the sun.)
