17-year-old Gingrich and two other young women in Mennonite hats and aprons carry 70 boxes of \"melt moment\" sandwich shortbread, peanut butter balls and other best-selling books in the dark hours of the morning

From the stables to the table, they handle lamb, beef, goats and rabbits for free.
\"The Labor Day fire burned the main market building and destroyed his counters, as well as the equipment and inventory of the other 58 suppliers, more than three months have passed.
The Ontario fire chief\'s office is still investigating the cause of the fire.
But last week, on the open day of the temporary new barn rising from the ashes, things finally started to improve.
In 45 minutes, the bacon was sold out.
Soon the ground beef and lamb chops disappeared.
By noon, the rest of many black pallets were scrawled labels.
There are three buns and a croissant at the nearby bread stand.
At sheepside Up sheepskin and leather products, a group of customers embraced the passing and tried on Ray Anderson\'s comfortable handmade slippers.
\"We have a lot of very good customers here,\" said Anderson, 63 . \" He has been in business for 39 years and lost about $50,000 in inventory in the fire.
\"There is a lot of support.
\"For many vendors, this support keeps them going, but still makes them cry.
The overnight fire caused a loss of at least $3 million, and in the most profitable season of the year, many people\'s income dropped sharply or did not at all.
It destroyed a community known for its farmers market on Thursday and Saturday, which attracts thousands of visitors to the Waterloo area every week to provide livelihoods for local farmers, chefs and artisans.

When the family arrived at the market, cars and pedestrians were traveling around.
\"It\'s incredible, we got people\'s support from there,\" recalls Tony, 46 . \".
\"You can see that they are all customers you know and cry against the fence.
The gushing of many people he did not even know the name still surprised him.
\"You see customers every week for years and they start to feel like family,\" he said . \".
\"But I never realized they felt the same way.

Local businesses began collecting donations.
One day, an elderly customer who bought sheepskin slippers from Sunnyside Up appeared at the front door of Ray and Brenda Anderson in Cambridge and put a card in Ray\'s hand.
When he opened it later, he found five $100 bills.
As the couple scrambled to rebuild their inventory, people put down their meals and Ray kept sewing and cutting in the shops in their stucco garage.
They had insurance but the claim was rejected and they were still negotiating with the company.
On October, fellow craftsmen donated handmade works for silent auctions at a fundraising event organized by family and friends at Maxwell\'s music house in Waterloo.
People who know Ray recycled old fur coats to trim some of his sheepskin hats began collecting them to donate.

The Anderson family is full of sunshine.

The leather chair that he redecorated for the customer who tried on the slippers was gone, as well as the original logo of the couple in 1974, and the belt rack that Ray used for 40 years.
However, they have received unexpected gifts over the past three months, and some of them have customers.
A local blacksmith forged a new belt rack for Ray.
Others have built a new logo for them.

At its peak, about 400 vendors sell everything from apples and tomatoes to handmade quilts, bacon on bread and antiques on buildings or outdoor stalls.

Even local customers are confused about where their favorite booth is relocated.
But in the face of all this, neighbors and friends came over.
Esther Weber was rebuilt in front of the cash register at the new quilt and more stalls, and he posted the handwritten Bible verse in job book: \"The Lord gave it, and the Lord took it.
\"Weber, 61, said she did this to remind her of what she got since the fire destroyed a handmade quilt worth $16,000, and each quilt is equivalent to a few weeks of work
\"I\'m thrilled,\" Webb said, who ran the farm produce booth for 28 years before taking over the quilting business two years ago.
A neighbor broke the news on Labor Day.
Webb lives alone in El Meira without TV or radio.
She was shocked.
But her mennono community and customers quickly stood up.
Friends and neighbors donated their own handmade items and even gathered to buy a quilting bee to help her restock.
Although she still lost her income for three months, her church helped make up for the financial loss of her goods.
\"This is exactly what we have been taught, and you all go to help when people need help,\" she said as a tear slipped down her cheeks.
For Tony lombroto, there are important lessons in the predicament.
Charles\'s quality meat has been the backbone of the market for 20 years, where customers are their main source of income.
\"The business supports three families,\" Lobrutto said . \".
He has three children and three between his brothers.
