JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. -

Rain didn't damper spirits for ETSU's spring farmer's market.

Vendors selling fresh food and produce to local staff will be set up in the middle of campus every Thursday until May 2.

We learned the market is entirely student run, and this year there's hopes it's bigger than ever.

"We're excited about growth. Last year, we tended to have about eight vendors per week. This year, we're looking at about 14 or 15 per week," said David Blackley, one of the market's organizers.

The market will run from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Thursdays.   

Some of this year's selections will include fresh lettuces, chili powders, and homemade pot pies, donuts, and chocolates.
