Takoma Park's Crossroads Farmers Market will open for its third season today, offering a smorgasbord of food and produce, from locally-grown fruits and vegetables to Salvadoran pupusas and Korean bulgogi dishes.

Despite the death of the market's founder, Takoma Park resident John Hyde, in March, as well as hardships with the organization of the market last year, organizers are confident that the outdoor farmer's market in the 1300 block of Holton Lane will be better than ever this year with the addition of more vendors and a wider array of musical performers who will entertain customers from June through closing Oct. 28.
