It's a family thing!
The Farmers Market is the place to be Saturday morning when you want to enjoy a bit of the "Old Days."
Wherever you look there are reminders of how things used to be. Earlier this season, Kim, of Poplar Flats Farm, worked her spinning wheel to turn wool into yarn and Brenda showed how she makes Appalachian brooms which she sells around the world.
Even the fact that the market is outdoors reminds us that the weather can mess up even the best plans as it did on June 11 when the market was rained out early. Last weekend the market's range of baked goods grew when newcomer Shannon came with her crispy mini-baguettes.
Unfortunately for folks who are looking for fresh produce, the cold, wet spring delayed the growth of fresh local goods. Fortunately, the grocery stores in Marlinton always have a nice mix of fruits and vegetables. Buy local - eat healthy!
County Commissioners David Fleming, Martin Saffer and Jamie Walker have helped the Farmers Market to better serve the community.
Helpful hint: Trying to thin a clump of seedlings by pulling them up disturbs nearby plants. Use a small pair of scissors to thin. The remaining plants will thrive.
