I really feel like you can experience some of the best of Lubbock at the Lubbock Downtown Farmers Market. It's more than just shopping, its community.

The Market has scheduled an "Early Market Event" for May 5th. That's right, you can get your Cinco de Mayo on with fresh produce, local artists and all kinds of cool stuff.

The Market officially opens at 9 a.m. at 19th and Buddy Holly. Parking really isn't a problem in that area at that time of the morning, you can usually just slide in over at the Buddy Holly Center or one of the adjacent streets. Probably the best tips I can give you are bring your own bag and bring cash if you can.  You can check out the Facebook invite here.
