Farmer's Market Vendors to be Back in Business
Posted February 12, 1999
RALEIGH — 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.
