The recently renovated Smart Home at the Museum of Science and Industry is all about ecology (its subtitle is "Green + Wired"). So it's no surprise that the Home has opened up a free farmers market on its premises. Opening Friday, June 5, the free market (running on the first and third Fridays of each month in the East parking lot) will feature fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables, baked goods, plants, flowers and even cooking demonstrations.
The first such demonstration will be extra special: The Hearty Boys (from the Food Network) will make an appearance on opening day at 11:30 a.m., offering some of their trademark food and personality.
The market runs from 7:30 a.m.-2 p.m.; admission to the Smart Home or the Museum of Science and Industry is not required.
