Original Farmers Market: Picnic for the Planet
@ The Original Farmers Market | 11 a.m. | April 22
Stop by the Conservancy's booth for tips on eating smart, and get your free reusable shopping bag. Show your bag to participating vendors for Earth Day specials.
In celebration of Earth Day, the Nature Conservancy is asking people to "Picnic for the Planet."
