Farmer

A patch of land covered with gravel just beyond the railroad bridge in Batavia is home to a modest farmers market every Saturday.

With their trucks loaded with cucumbers, green beans, yellow squash, zucchini, tomatoes, onions and a few hanging baskets of flowers, farmers have been coming to sell their produce for a few hours each week for five years.

The farmers market was started in 2000 as part of a Clermont 20/20 project. The business section of the Clermont 20/20 found the farmers and found the location.
