MOUNT VERNON — Vendors participating in the Mount Vernon Farmers Market this year were required to complete Quality Assurance classes at the Knox County OSU Extension office. The second class offered for the season was held Tuesday evening at the extension office. It included a few changes.

The class was presented by market manager Cheryl McKee and the new market board including members Wayne Spray and Matt Gompf. Lisa Rickard is also on the board but was unable to attend.

The board is an addition to the market and was selected by McKee for their experience as market vendors. Spray sells produce, Rickard sells meat and Gompf sells meat and eggs. In the future, as the board develops, market vendors will vote on the board representatives.
