It almost looked like old times on opening day of the Anacortes Farmers Market Saturday, May 1. 

The crowd was there, and so was the sunshine. Some evidence of the ongoing pandemic was the wearing of masks and at least one vendor — Knit Wit Dawn — selling hand-made cloth masks. 

Conversations included comments about the nice weather and the joy of getting outside to mingle with others. 

There were lines of people buying lunch from area food vendors, and Ebb,  Slack and Flood provided live reggae and funk music. People ate at picnic tables in the Madrona Grove and at tables in the center of the market. 

The market runs from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday through October.
