With warmer days ahead and sunny skies, preparations got underway Saturday for the opening of the 2009 Nelson Farmers Market Co-op next month. Volunteers spent most the day driving stakes and raising the tent for the highly popular outdoor market held from May through October in Nellysford, Virginia at the entrance to Stoney Creek.
