New market needs protection from rain in Alcorn County

CORINTH, Miss. (AP) — Alcorn County will be spending a little more money to help keep the rain out of its new farmers market.

The Daily Corinthian reports the Board of Supervisors has authorized spending about $1,300 to erect a barrier designed to keep rain out.

Rufus Duncan, representing the vegetable growers association, asked for the help.

He said the county also may also want to consider a way to keep customers from using the shed like a drive-thru, but he said growers are generally happy with the new facility on Fulton Drive.
