The scene at the farmers market starts long before the crowds show up.
On a sunny Wednesday morning, vendors at the Shemanski Park farmers market are setting up during the hour before opening, deftly arranging their fruits and vegetables into artistic displays and chatting among themselves.
The vendors are generally so friendly, that it's surprising to see Sun Gold Farm's Chris Hertel turn a customer away. The customer is surprised too, and walks away in a huff, muttering something about the customer always being right. Chris shrugs. He can't sell until the market officially opens.
