Despite having some financial difficulty, Campbell said customers are still supportive.
"On average, we get about 300 people. We'll have people lined up. We have some good, dedicated customers who come there every day, every year. When you come to our market, you get to meet the people who make it. They all live within 50 miles. They're your neighbors. You can meet the people, talk about growing stuff and get advice on how to grow."
