    Now that the local farmers markets are begining to open acrost the state it might be the last year you see many of these local run markets. Most of these markets have strict regulations to be a vender like the following. Must be grown by the vender. Must be grown in NC. Must be home made no processed food. etc..

    As I said it might be the last year you see them please do a story on this because the senate bill 510 will put most of the local farmers at the market out of selling. They will be required to pay 500.00 a year to the goverment and have inspections to their farms to sell at a local farmersm market. People should know this could be the end.
