More than an honor, it was a distinct privilege to have three tour bus loads of people from the North American Farmers’ Direct Marketing Association make a stop at Saunders Brothers Farm Market in Piney River this past Saturday afternoon. It was all part of a week long tour hosted by the association’s Williamsburg event.

Members of the bus tour got the chance to check out some of the locally grown fruit produced by Saunders Brothers.

The market is not in operation during the cold winter months, but a special opening was held to accomodate the large bus tour.

Saunders Brothers Farm Market will open for regular seasonal operation in the Spring of 2012.
