    Love this market! My girlfriends and I go every year! This is neither here nor there but I bought a groupon a couple years back and was unable to use it…unlike most, it was “now or never” and so I didnt get to use the face value for a future market. It would make me so happy to win tickets this year!! Cheers Miss 604
