Cheers: Clearly, spring already has arrived in Clark County, with the tell-tale sign being the return of the Vancouver Farmers Market. The market, a mix of arts, crafts, fresh produce, prepared foods, and people watching, kicked off its 2014 season last weekend at Esther and Sixth streets in downtown Vancouver.This summer marks the 25th season of the Vancouver Farmers Market, and during that time it has grown into one of the city's signature events. Running each Saturday and Sunday from now until the fall, the market is certain to offer plenty of local flavor -- and not solely in the food that is available. The impact of the Farmers Market is demonstrated by the fact that an estimated 10,000 people visited last weekend, setting the stage for another successful year.
