Sweet smiles, summer vegetables

The Power Plant Market Place opened for the season Wednesday, and scores of area farmers turned out with their selections of squash, cucumbers, snap beans and new potatoes.
Today, farmers will be back – this time, hopefully, with tomatoes and peaches as well. The Farmer’s Market is open Wednesdays and Saturdays from 7 a.m. until noon.
