The downtown Palo Alto Farmers Market always opens the Saturday after May Fete Parade.

Hey, anybody know why publicity on May Fete is so spotty? Probably the biggest family participation event in Palo Alto, yet until about a week ago the May Fete's own webpage and FB page hadn't been updated from last year.
