Nolan said: "I wasn't sure if I was going to come out due to the rain, but it's only three minutes (away from home). It's really great for us over here."

COLUMBIA — The City Council on Monday night approved a request by the Columbia Farmers' Market to establish three satellite locations: Forum Christian Church, Rock Bridge Christian Church and Boone Hospital Center. The grand opening of the south market at Forum Christian Church was Thursday night in the church parking lot at Forum and Nifong boulevards. The Forum location will be open from 4 to 6 p.m. every Thursday until Oct. 28. The Rock Bridge church will serve as an indoor marketplace during winter. Details of the Boone Hospital Center location are still being negotiated.
