Farmer's Market Vendors to be Back in Business

Posted February 12, 1999

— Vendors burned out of their posts by a fire at the State Farmer's Market will soon be back in business.

The Farmers' Market is setting up a temporary area for the vendors, which will only be one-fourth the size of the Market Exhange that burned in January.

But vendors say they'll make the best of it.

The open-air market should be ready by March 10th.

"My nice customers have been helping me out, different people, my church has helped me," said Barbara Johnson, a vendor.

Nearly three weeks ago, the building was torched by fire, putting 10 vendors temporarily out of business.

Investigators still have not pinpointed a specific cause of the fire.
