HOT – Jan Powers Farmers Markets – Logan Rd, Stones Corner.

Jan Powers has taken a leap of faith and brought her farmers markets to the quirky Logan Rd strip in Stones Corner – otherwise home to a few hit ‘n miss cafes and clothing shops alike, store plenty of empty run down stores and a mish-mash of people from all walks of life. Stones Corner […]
