COLUMBIA — Sustainable Farms & Communities gave a tour of Columbia Farmers’ Market for immigrants around the Boone County area Saturday. Aside from helping immigrants get more fresh foods, the main goal of the tour was to help area immigrants become involved in the American community and remove language barriers. Twenty-five volunteer interpreters speaking French, Arabic, Spanish and other languages guided the tours. About 80 to 100 immigrants participated in the tour.
