Youngest Grandson and I are off to Farmers' Market in a few minutes. I'm having an editorial crisis over the spelling. After complaining to Steve that no one seems to understand how to use apostrophes I'm finding that this one has me flummoxed. In print I've seen Farmers Market, Farmer's Market and Farmers' Market. I have always chosen the latter because I figured it was the market of the farmers, their market, and there are many vendors so it has to be plural. So I thought it through, but newspaper reporters and their editors are also thinking it through and coming to different conclusions.
I can't stand confusion like this. It makes me feel like a border collie stuck in a car and unable to herd the traffic.
