The first day of the Farmers Market in King George brought residents out to see what was available. Extension Agent Regina Prunty said there was a lot of traffic between 8 and 10 a.m. Saturday morning. Miles Hastings of Canning Farm had grain fed beef available. He is pictured with Steve Hickman, another Market vendor. Other vendors had some vegetables and plenty of plants. It is still early in the season for many locally grown vegetables and fruits. Prunty said that some visitors to the market held at King George Elementary School requested information about how to become vendors. She hopes to be able to form a co-op for local eggs. Local produce can also mean fish, seafood, bread, preserves, honey, etc. The Market will run through October 31. Watch The Journal for information about what will be available on future dates.
