Although the temperatures were in the 90s, ample shade allowed reasonable comfort at the July 11 Biscuits & Jam Farmers’ Market in down New Albany. Several hundred people shopped there between 4 and 7 pm.

The number of vendors offering locally grown fruits and vegetables seems to be larger than last year, with more vendors coming to New Albany from nearby counties.
