On opening day of Benicia farmers market, Sofia Gonsalves, 3, of Benicia helps herself to the fresh stawberries. (Stacey J. Miller/Times-Herald) BENICIA - Asparagus and strawberries are in full swing. That means the local farmers market is, too.

"I haven't seen this many people in so long," said Casey Hanley, a market regular who was pleased with the turnout, but lamented the absence of her favorite sandwich booth.
