The operators of the Mammoth Farmers Market today (Wednesday) will dedicate the day to the late Skip Harvey, who died Monday morning of complications from throat cancer.
"Skip was responsible for moving our market to a more central part of town and for growing it into a community-building event," said Kathleen and Paul Rudder in a statement.
"He loved the Mammoth Lakes Farmerâ€™s Market. Todayâ€™s market is dedicated to Skip. Please come out and enjoy it, enjoy your community, maybe buy a zucchini in his honor ."
As an added treat, the Rudders said they will have his speaker and his iPod playing his tunes out there.
"Weâ€™ll miss him," they said.
Harvey, recently a town councilman, was owner of the Base Camp CafĂ©, near to the Farmers Market in the Mammoth Luxury Mall.
