Busy weekend downtown with festival/Farmers Market


WASHINGTON COURT HOUSE — This weekend brings the local “Scarecrow Festival,” with a plethora of fun events, as well as vendors and shopping experiences. On Saturday morning many will want to participate in the 5K or 10K walk run, either walking/running or cheering on those who are. With the Fayette County Farmers Market literally in the heart of Washington Court House, you’ll be able to pick up your weekly fresh produce, breads, jams, beef and desserts and still have plenty of time for the many Scarecrow events. And our unique crafters complement the findings from vendors here just for the weekend.

Cub Scout Pack 112 of WCHO will be selling popcorn in a variety of gift containers; visit our community guest tent to support the cub scouts fundraiser.

The Market is open Saturday morning from 8:30 to noon. It is located in the municipal parking lot on the corner of South Main and East East streets. SNAP EBT food benefit cards and credit/debit cards are accepted. Those using the SNAP EBT card for food purchases receive matching dollar “Produce Perks” tokens ($1 for $1) good only for fruits, vegetables, and food producing plants. So,”buy one, get one” for up to $25 every market day. Five dollar coupons will be available again for Fayette County Farm Bureau members at each Saturday market; these can be spent at both the Wednesday and Saturday markets.
