For 18 years, Richard Gruber and his family have traveled to Summerville every Saturday morning , starting in spring, to sell the fruits of their labor. Literally, Gruber is a farmer and his family sells the fruits and vegetables they raise on their farm in St. George at the Summerville Farmer's Market.
Every Saturday morning beginning in early March, farmers and vendors sell their produce and wares along W. Doty Avenue in Summerville. Yet the event is much more than a market to sell but a gathering of friends and neighbors who find time to chat between picking ripe cantaloupes and eating boiled peanuts.
