Westwood Farmer's Market is Back. Tell Your Mother.
OK, well it isn't exactly the same make and model as the old farmer's market, which recently kicked the bucket -- but it's got heart, which is all that matters.

There were problems re-establishing the farmer's market on other nearby streets because as everybody knows, Westwood residents and merchants can be little bitches at times.
