Is it open only on Sundays or every day? That wasn't clear from the article.

Tom: I will check. You're right. It's not clear. My impression was Sundays only, but I'll check and update this. jd

Is there a list of vendors that might be there? I know some of the Farmer Markets that I go to, the vendors have a facebook page and they list what they are bringing on what day, if any special request?

In the past I have gone to the market and I signed up for emails from the market which let you know what specific vendors would be there on Sunday. The email would also at least generally describe what each vendor was offering.
