Farmers Market Profile: Don Myers

Myers brings more than tomatoes and peppers to the market — he's got several wooden toys on display, and he's full of stories to share

If you visit Don Myers' stand at the , you're likely to walk away with an array of tomatoes or peppers.

But maybe more likely to hear a few of Myers' stories.

Myers, who started the Myers Driving School in 1960, is eager to share his tales with shoppers at the market (at least he was with us that day!).

Myers said he been growing tomatoes since 1960 and has about 2,500 tomato plants and 1,000 pepper plants. He now has a serve-yourself stand three miles out of Greentown between state Route 43 and Middlebranch Avenue, but from October through Christmas you'll find him at local craft shows selling his homemade wooden toys.

There's more.

Myers, father of our parenting columnist , also is a buckeye expert. We even at the Stark County Fair this week.
