Join the mayor, Downtown Springfield, Inc., St. John’s Hospital representatives and the Chamber of Commerce in a ribbon cutting ceremony at 10 a.m. Frank Trompeter Quartet will play, Celebrity Chef Ashley Glatz Meyer will provide a demonstration, and free cake will be served while it lasts. The open-air marketplace of fresh and local food is open Wednesdays and Saturdays through Oct. 27. Starting in June, Saturdays include an artisans area, with Super Saturdays on the third Saturday of each month kicking it up a notch with live music and chef demos.
