For the last month, nature has had us by the balls, teasing us with hints of spring and warmth, then assaulting us with hail and bracing winds. To celebrate spring's long-overdue arrival (and its offerings of asparagus, nettles, and fiddlehead ferns), and the city's recent pledge to cut permitting fees and help farmers' markets establish affordable, long-term homes, I offer you a comprehensive list of your neighborhood farmers' markets which, if they're not already open, will be within the month. God bless America—now go shop and eat.
