Going back 64 years, Charles Green runs the longest continuous vending operation at Hagerstown's Historic City Farmers Market, but Mitch Dodson's connection goes back three-quarters of a century. On Saturday, after Mayor David S. Gysberts cut a cake celebrating the market's 230th year of continuous operation, Dodson recalled working at a nearby grocery store in the 1930s.
