In its seventh season, the Mainstreet Farmers Market has set new records in sales for farmers and other vendors, despite still having no roof over shoppers' heads on rainy days. Even before last Saturday wrapped up this season's traditional Saturday morning market in the Sea Island Bank parking lot, vendors had grossed $227,874 in sales, a 15 percent increase over the 2013 Saturday market season. Shopping by Lantern Light, scheduled for 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, will put a bow on the in-person, outdoor markets for 2014.
