The Leroy James Farmers Market vendor of the week is Yates and Bailey Bee Farm.

Yates and Bailey Bee Farm has been a vendor at the Leroy James Farmers Market for almost six years.

“I am a lifelong farmer,” said Bobby Yates, a Virginia native who got his first hive of bees at age 14. “Since then I have farmed the mountaintops of Virginia to the flat lands of North Carolina.”

In 2001, he moved to North Carolina to be with his grandchildren, bringing along three hives of bees. Now Yates and his grandchildren, Mason and Jesse Bailey, have 50 hives.

The Leroy James Farmers Market is at 4560 County Home Road. Hours are from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. The Farmers Market Nutrition Education Program presents a healthy cooking demonstration from 8 a.m.-noon each Saturday. The featured item for Saturday is cantaloupe. Samples and recipes of the prepared dish will be available. For more information, visit www.pittcountync.gov/​599/​Farmers-Market.

Congratulations, graduates! One day, you'll look back on the past six years and say, "Those college days were the happiest of my life."

Honestly, I'm guessing you'll say that just a couple of days after you leave here and move back into your parents' house. And every day afterward.

Many of you will…

The results were salty, addictive and…
