Peg Acker: The Farmers’ Market

"The Market House is one of the big things [in Meadville]. I don’t want to leave the Market House! It has been very good. They still are going strong with their fresh vegetables and fruits in the summer. I know one of my friends here… her husband brings it in every week. He goes downtown to the Market House and gets us fresh tomatoes. She brings them to the dinner table and we cut them up and pass them around. There’s seven of us at our table, and we all get some of her tomatoes! They’re awesome … a summer tomato, nothing better!"
