Farmers market season opens to large crowd

Sunny skies and spring fever on Saturday, April 17, brought many to the Heathsville Farmers Market (above) at Rice’s Hotel/Hughlett’s Tavern in Heathsville. The “Make It a Heathsville Saturday” centerpiece included an Earth Day celebration,  sponsored by the Northumberland Association for Progressive Stewardship. The market offered both people and dogs the first opportunity in a long time to hang out with one another. Photo by Jackie Nunnery
