I have lived in the Sparta area for over 50 years and have grown up with most of the farmers around here. They grow the best fruits and vegies which I would choose to buy over the imported grocery stores any day. I do not have a green thumb and can't grow anything, except weeds and poison ivy! I look forward every summer to getting all my fresh produce from the market and seeing the many faces of friends I've known all my life. It makes me feel good to do my little part to help them to survive in this unusually rough economy.
