The city kicked off a new season for its community market on Howard Avenue on Tuesday. Dozens of vendors were set up under the I-110 overpass, selling everything from fresh produce to plants to arts and crafts.

Shoppers also enjoyed live entertainment and giveaways during an opening day festival. Vendors said they're glad to be back out doing what they love.

"It's something I love to do, me and my family, and I like meeting people, and being with people and greeting people. Its really a hobby, something I love to do," said Mery Ferrley.

"We're not big stores, and we're just ma, pa companies. We have investments into what we're doing and that kind of stuff, and to just come out and say hello, you know?" said MaryAnn Daniels.
