Coffee Co. Farmer's Market

This year's record-setting drought has taken its toll on roadside produce vendors.

Throughout the tri-states' area, it's hard to find plump, juicy locally-grown fruits and vegetables.

Longtime buyers say it's a poor year for their produce.

Due to the lack of water, vegetables are under-sized and the selection is way down. For one Enterprise grower, it is taken a lot of vigilance and patience to till the dusty soil.

“We’re having a problem with the dry season. Nothing we can do about it. God's work and God is going to handle it. We're just so good to be here to the market today,” Gerald Wilson of Enterprise

For growers who do have irrigation capabilities, they say the heat has scorched much of their crop.
