Pat Derring of Brownwood, left, looks over the cantaloupes offered Saturday morning by Joyce Couch, right, of Zephyr at the Brownwood Area Farmers Market. The market is open from 7 a.m. until sell-out on Tuesdays, Thursday and Saturdays under the Monroe Overpass of Austin Avenue at the corner of Avenue B and Brady Avenue. Even at 8 a.m. Saturday, vendors were starting to run short of some selections, so early shoppers get the best pick. Photo by Gene Deason
