Check out The Salem News' Best Bets for turning your mundane Monday into a fresh start to the week:

The Beverly Farmers Market opens today, rain or shine, from 3 to 7 p.m. at Veterans Memorial Park, located on Rantoul Street near Beverly Depot. This year's market features local vegetables, meat, cheese and seafood, and live music in the park. The market is family and pet friendly and handicapped-accessible.

Explore the archaeology of folklore with Salem State University history professor Emerson “Tad” Baker at 7 p.m. in Old Town Hall, located at 32 Derby Square in Salem. Baker's presentation examines folk magic and its presence in the colonial landscape, and the evidence of counter-magic found in Baker’s archaeological excavations and early New England homes that are still standing. Tickets cost $10 and proceeds benefit the Salem Award Foundation for Human Rights and Social Justice. The event is hosted by The Witch House as part of its “Lessons of 1692 Education Series.” For more information or to purchase tickets, visit www.witchhouse.info.
