It’s official: The Newcastle Fruit and Produce stand will open for another season. The familiar red-and-white big top tent was pitched Monday. Dave Franklin, the owner of the fruit stand, said he would open April 17.
The seasonal stand sells fresh fruit and vegetables. In addition, it sells plants and trees for landscaping, as well as Christmas trees and wreaths during the holiday season.
Motorists honked and waved at Franklin and his co-workers as they assembled the tent and made preparations for the opening.
