Riverfest Farmers' Market, because nice venue with walkways and water running nearby.

Valerie, I just saw your post in the FAQ's. That section is just for you to get information on "how to post in the discussion." Follow the directions there and post your question in the "Discussions." Click there, ask your question. I know there is money to be made at these kind of events. I recently heard of a very successful year round farmers market in downtown S. Bend.
