Community residents gathered on Locust Street Saturday morning for an old-fashioned roofing party to help put the roof on the new Farmers Market next to the Station on South Locust.
The Market, scheduled to be ready for the Split Rail Eco Fair next weekend, will host not only a Farmers Market but other events and become part of the complex centered around the Floyd Country Store and the Friday Night Jamboree. Owner Woody Crenshaw (right) invited anyone interested in helping for the Saturday task and several braved near-freezing temperatures and a threat of snow to pitch in.
The Market features a modified timber frame tin roof. Crenshaw said he has been in contact with local growers for recommendations and ideas for the market.
