It's not that other farmers markets need not apply — the more the merrier. But none of the others in and around town have the advantage of Pearl's setting of historic (and historic-adjacent) buildings, its water park where kiddos (and ageless elders) can get soaked and its carefully curated contingent of vendors. You're tugged one way by the aromas of Indian cuisine, another by the prospect of banana leaf-swaddled tamales. It's hard not to be seduced by specialty breads — and then by locally harvested honeys to slather on thick slices. (There's also the option of having a discussion about bee colony collapse should you be so inclined.) Kombucha and bone broth help represent the culinary cutting edge; pestos and San Antonio sauces compete for attention with craft chocolates and "award-winning" cheeses. About the only option missing is a rent-a-pup stand for those with Fido FOMO. (Yes, there are lots of dogs. And strollers.) Not everybody is set up by 9 a.m. on Saturday, and some are sold out before 1 p.m. The sweet spot seems to be right in the middle.
