Planting the seed for a new tradition

Posted: Updated:

South Hero played host to the final farmer's market of the season today.

Flooding soured the annual apple fest about two years ago-- which used to bring in about 20-thousand people Columbus Day weekend. Farmer's market organizers say they hope this new tradition - now in its second year - takes root. They're encouraged by today's turnout despite a cold rain.

Denise Boutin, Market Organizer said, "It means a lot because I think it shows how many people want to have the market continue throughout the season, so they come and they support us and we're very happy that people are here."

Today marks the end of the Summer farmers market. However, winter markets will be held at the South Hero Congregational Church twice a month.
