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.
Thursday marked the kickoff of the 16th annual Benicia Main Street Farmers Market, which spans two blocks of downtown and blankets several more with the smell of Kettle Corn and other treats.

"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.

The Benicia Main Street Farmers Market is held from 4 to 8 p.m., every Thursday through October at the end of First Street.
