Flint Farmers' Market vendor celebrates 50th anniversary

Posted: Updated:

(03/01/14) - Hugh Godfrey has been selling eggs and poultry at the Flint Farmers' Market for decades, and he says he isn't going anywhere.

Saturday, customers and friends celebrated his 50th anniversary as a vendor at the market. He started the business with his family and has worked alongside his family all this time.

"We didn't have that much for our eggs. Somebody out of Detroit came and bought them, and you only got 30 to 35 cents a dozen. You just can't live off of that. So my brother and I decided we'd come to market," Godfrey told ABC12.

When he started, 13 other vendors sold eggs - now he is one of just two. Godfrey sells from a prime spot at the market - just inside the double doors. He plans on keeping the same spot when the farmers market moves.
