Produce stands are bringing the farm to the streets of Zanesville.

Huston Farm is elling fresh fruits and vegetables from it’s 200 acre operation.

"It’s all locally grown right out here in Dresden, at Huston Farms, owners are Bill Houston and Tony Clapper, we have a stand in the farmers market and we usually tend to the Giant Eagles in Columbus," said William Marshall of Huston Farm.

Marshall says Maple Avenue is a prime location fort he stand because it’s very busy during the day. He says the economy hasn’t hurt the business this summer.

"As far as we know we have been doing alright so far., like we said, we do ask for the support of our local economy and the local supporters," said Marshall.

The Huston Farm stand is open every day of the week from 11 a.m. – 7 p.m. The Farmer’s Market is also open at the fairgrounds every Saturday from 9 a.m. til noon.
