DOVER, Del. (AP) — Delaware agriculture officials say the state's farmers' markets posted record sales this past season.
Vendors at Delaware's 29 farmers' markets sold almost $2 million in fresh produce and other goods in the 2012 season.

Officials say the record sales reflect the growing popularity of the local markets.
