Many of the vendors say they like the market mostly for making contacts with their customers, getting to know both the regulars and the others who bring goods to market. Lisa Waud, who runs a container gardening service called Pot & Box (and writes a blog called green thumb black dog), sells flowers and herbs, but mainly sees it as a way to promote her service business. “It’s been really fun,” she says.
