June 18, 1993

The original Carroll County Farmer's Market opens for its 22nd summer season at 8 a.m. tomorrow at the Agricultural Center on Smith Avenue in Westminster.

Visitors can meet the farmers who grow the fruits and vegetables and the country cooks who bake the breads, pies, cakes and other goodies on sale. They also can learn to make special dishes and do crafts from weekly demonstrations.

Shop for homemade jams and jellies, plants and flowers, fresh eggs, poultry and meat, plus a variety of crafts.

For opening day, Kay-Cee the Clown will provide entertainment from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.

This year the Farmer's Market will celebrate the "Year of the Craft," with numerous stall operators demonstrating their skills. Participating vendors were chosen by a committee for originality, creativity and quality.
