A sampling of local vendors set up shop last Saturday and Sunday at the Fairview Farmers Market, with goods ranging from handmade jewelry and fresh produce to meats and honey.

 “[The market] will go though the fall, and we’ll be here as long as there’s a good market and we have something to sell,” representative of Local Family Farms J.K. said.

The European-style market, hosted by Four Seasons Markets, was set up on the corner of Stacy and Prairie roads on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will continue weekly.

Among the vendors was Warne Bee Farm, selling a variety of honey products, such as bottled honey, honey lozenges and honey candy. A three-generation family business, the honey is harvested and bottled in Anna, north of McKinney.

“[Business has] been actually really good, since it's starting to become spring now more people are starting to get out, ” Brandon Dell, grandson of Warne Bee Farm’s founder, said. “We’ve had a lot more people come by to buy things.”
