Vendors sell fresh produce, starts, fruit, baked goods and crafts.

The Anchor Point Farmers' Market opened its doors Monday at the Anchor Point Greenhouse, just off the Sterling Highway. Hours are 4-8 p.m. on Mondays.

Thanks to all of the hard working people involved, Anchor Point will run a successful farmers' market this year. Many businesses offered their help by hanging brightly colored flyers in their windows to support the market. Others showed their support by putting signs on their property to point the way to the Greenhouse.

The vendors at the market are charged a $15 fee to pay for the Port-a-potty for the public's comforts. Al Poindexter, owner of the Greenhouse, has put down pea gravel to minimize dust, also for the comfort of the public.
