Disagreements are just how our society is now.

Surprised Obama or Bush haven't been blamed yet. Or Common Core Standards.

The world is all nutty any more; and so are the people on these blogs.

Sure hope the vendors had their items insured.

I'm trying to understand the disagreements with these comments. Could this have to do with the fact that the building is owned by the fair board? And there have been problems with the management of the fair in the past? The farmer's market is a wonderful part of this community and yes some vendors store things there during the week. This is very sad and I hope there will be a way for them to recoup their loses.

What barbarian dirtbags could "disagree" with these comments, seeming to say this major loss was a good or deserved thing in any way? Those are kind, hard-working, salt-of-the-earth people down there, providing valuable products and services. I will look forward to getting back down to wherever they set up shop again and purchasing the "fruits" of their labors as soon as they're back in business.

So devastated for them and the loss for our community! What a great place we had there. Enjoyed it every Saturday. Let's help them re-build!

Wow, some idiot disagreeing with the comments made. Some people must be so miserable in their life that they are so hateful when a misfortune happens to others. Sad to hear about the fire and glad nobody was injured.

Such a tragedy for the vendors that hold the Farmers Market...My favorite place to hang out on a Saturday morning...So many things surely will have been lost as yes they do keep their items there so they don't have to haul everything back and forth... some vendors actually make their items and all of that will be hard to replace. The Market is so much better than going to the flea market. I will be thinking about all of you!!

Apparently lots of the vendors do store things there during the week.

What a terrible shame. Hope, but doubt, all the products the market merchants had down there had been removed when they left Saturday. So sad.
