You are running down your shopping list, and it's the usual stuff: turkey giblets, a new hearing aid, sweet corn, camouflage hunting wear, allspice, thick steaks, NASCAR collectibles, shoo-fly pie, and a framed poster of Johnny Depp in a bathtub. What you need, you realize, is Zern's Market, the sprawling, weekend-only retailer of most earthly desires in Gilbertsville, Montgomery County. But hasn't Zern's disappeared, another victim of suburbia's onward rush? Many people believe that - so many that customers have been staying away lately, said Joanne Gresh, general manager of the 82-year-old market.
