SHARON — A motor vehicle jumped the curb at the Sharon Farm Market on July 1 in the middle of the afternoon. It snapped a steel-reinforced concrete pole and then broke the plate-glass window. The vehicle was moving with enough force that it pushed the Farm Market office back about four inches.
No one was hurt.

Chris Choe, owner of the market, immediately began drawing up plans for a new, stronger pole system.

Because of the holiday weekend, the window could not be repaired until mid-week.
