Howard County May Close Two Farmers Markets

The board behind the Howard County farmers markets may close two of the weekly markets in 2014 -- specifically the Thursday market in East Columbia and the Saturday market in Glenwood, reports Sara Toth in the Sun.

It sounds like folks are trying to balance the business.  It's great to have options, but farmers who invest a long day in coming to sell need to have enough customers to make it worth their while.  Read Toth's story for the details.
