Despite the gloomy rain and a series of newly-instituted social distancing rules, the Allen County Farmers Market was in full swing Thursday.

According to Calvin Parker, the market’s seasonal debut last week “was a little slow,” perhaps because people were skittish about leaving their homes.

This week, vendor Ashton Heck of Heck Farms in Anderson County had brought a number of vegetables to the market, including lettuce, onions, asparagus and radishes.
