An early foray into establishing a farmers’ market in Emporium has been deemed a success. Cameron and Debra Uhl from Kersey set up on an open lot along Fourth Street to sell potatoes, tomatoes, corn, cucumbers, peppers and other locally grown products. Cameron County Chamber of Commerce hopes to make the farmers’ market a regular part of the downtown landscape next summer with multiple vendors and an expanded product line. Uhl’s 4 Star Farm is a family-owned, 40-acre operation. Cameron and Debra’s sons, Brian and Joshua, assist their parents. ‘Farming is a very time-consuming process, but we have a love and passion for what we do,’ said Cameron Uhl. The pair will return to Emporium Sept. 21 and continue to set up the market until they run out of produce. An early foray into establishing a farmers’ market in Emporium has been deemed a success.
