Seed planted for new farmers’ market

From the Register-Mail:

A new farmers’ market at the Knox County Fairgrounds will give shoppers another option for local produce this spring and summer. The farmers’ market will begin May 1.

Tom Collopy, a member of the Knox County Fair Board and the Local Growers Network, is the organizer of the new market.

The Local Growers Network is a group of people dedicated to growing fresh produce to be sold locally. LGN has a contract to grow a number of vegetables for the food service at Knox College.
