“Come outside … we’ll get some social distancing,” grins Calvin Parker, proprietor of Parker’s Greenhouse north of Humboldt.

Parker has been growing fresh vegetables for Allen County’s Farmers Markets for several years now, and clearly takes pride in his work.

In past years, he’s also operated a market stand from the side of the road, where folks put their money in a bucket following the honor system.
