[Homeroast] Brewing without electricity

Friends have been urging me to set up a booth at a local farmer's market.  I went around this past weekend to do some "research" and see what the crowds are like, how everyone else is set up, and do some general "thinkin."
My thought is to sell coffee by the bag.  I also feel i need to obviously offer some coffee by the cup. As i've said in an earlier thread temp is hovering around the 90's.  So i'm thinking of making some iced coffee the night before to offer.  But i also need to offer hot coffee.  The market is from 8a-12p so there is bound to be someone (hopefully a bunch) who would also like a hot cup o' joe before it gets too hot and humid.  The first obvious problem with serving hot coffee is no electricity.  The second issue i see is being able to brew and serve enough to keep up.So I thought i'd tap into the experiences and wisdom of the list once again.Here's what I'm thinking...
Get a propane powered, single eye camper stove thingy to boil water.Chemex brew into an air pot to keep it warm.My primary concern with this is grinding the coffee the night before.  Can't think of a way to grind there on site.
Any ideas and incite would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance!
