However, the farmers' market issue has sprouted in the county courtroom more than once during the past week. Last Thursday a group of area watermelon growers met in the same courtroom to organize an association and circulate a petition advocating a fairgrounds' market for all local produce growers ,nd requesting the county to purchase scales "suitable for large _,cks" to be at the fairgrounds. Ronnie Edwards, a Murchison-based melon farmer, estimated the cost of such scales at "about $20,000." County Extension Agent Gayle Finch explained Tuesday morning scales for such an operation would "run closer to $40,000" and noted that a bonded weigher would also be required to administer the equipment to meet with state agricultural rules. When informed of the melon growers' petition, Judge Reagan pointed out "there is no money in the county budget for scales." The fledgling melon growers' association will meet again Thursday, April 14, at 7:30 p.m. in Burnett's Ranch Supply store on State Highway 19, approximately three miles south of Athens, to write by-laws and elect of- ricers. Fairgrounds' Master Plan The central issue in recent discussions of a fairgrounds' market seems to be whether or not such a facility is included in the 20-year master plan of the fairgrounds as developed by the Henderson County Fair Board. Edwards told melon growers at last Thursday's gathering that the fair board had approved the concept of a farmers' market at the fairgrounds in its"10-year master plan." However, both Judge Reagan and fair board president Jeff Fulgham this week denied any knowledge of a far- mere' market in the fairgrounds' master plan. Judge Reagan said Monday "there is no land available out at the fairgrounds or in the master plan for a farmers' market." Fulghem noted that another obstacle to such a market operation would be other use of the fairgrounds' facflltlea. "Once the coliseum is completed we (fair board) expect the faculty will be in use every weekend for rodeos, horse shows, livestock exhibitions and other civic activities," explained the three- year veteran of the fair board. County agent Finch, however, con-'i ! firmed Tuesday that a "farmers' :,i market was on the llst developed as ! i part of the master plan for potential users and uses of the fairgrounds. "We are trylng to develop a facility out there that will ace,m,date vartoua i groups in the county," Finch explained. Spokesmen for the, as yet unnamed, i melon growers' group declared last !
