A cowbell rings the market open every Saturday morning at 10. Shoppers stroll the market stalls. Most carry baskets and reusable bags they are filling with produce and locally made items.

Margaret Lavigueur is often at the market representing Kachemak Bay Lions Club. Today, she's selling tickets for the market’s Thanksgiving turkey raffle and she's checking in with the Yes to Better Bags booth right next to her raffle table. Lavigueur says she'll vote yes to ban single-use plastic bags in Homer.
