O Farmer, Where Art Thou?

MARLBOROUGH

City officials have opened up the old fire station in downtown Marlborough for a farmer's market every Friday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

There's just one problem: a lack of farmers.

In recent weeks, just one or two farmers have shown up to sell their wares. This year is the first time the city has allowed a farmer's market to operate inside the old fire station, located at the corner of Bolton and Main streets.

Perhaps business will grow when tomato season comes into full swing.
