Farmers Market Opens For Business

There are plenty of fresh vegetables to choose from at the Longview farmers market.

The market opened Monday morning at the Longview fairgrounds behind the Maude Cobb convention center.

It provides local growers an opportunity to sell their produce directly to the customers and it gives customers a chance at homegrown, fresh fruits and vegetables

"The produce is fresh, delicious, the tomatoes are out of this world and I like the people. I like to buy directly from the farmers," says market customer Lynn Greer.

Longview's farmers market opens at 7 a.m. every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

In Tyler, the farmers market opens at 7 a.m. every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Both run through August.
