Farmers’ market brings customers, vendors together

[JULY 25, 2000]  Satisfied customers and vendors who go home with empty pickup trucks are the sign of a successful farmers’ market. That was the story on a recent Saturday morning at Lincoln’s Latham Park, where by 11:15 customers had carried away so many bags of vegetables and baked goods that some vendors were saying, "Sorry, I’m sold out."

After 250 years,

[JULY 25, 2000]  Obituaries are regular reading for many people.
