June is the time to visit Farmers Market


WASHINGTON COURT HOUSE —“June” sang the river, “June” sang the sky;/”June” sang the trees and the flowers together,/”June” sang the meadow-lark, “June” sing I; June is the month of singing weather./June is the time for swinging clover,/Time for the rumbling old fat bee-rover,/Time for the sky to bend sweetly over,/And whisper,/ “Earth dear, from the East to the West/You are lovely all seasons—but in June far the best!”’ (Annette Wynne, children’s poet).

Our elementary children shopping with parents at this week’s Fayette County Farmers Market can stop by the Kids Activity Table to make a Father’s Day card with Ms. Gwen and Mrs. Mandy, and take Dad home a marigold flower (one flower per family and while supplies last).

The Carnegie Public Library mobile bike will be at the market and visitors will have an opportunity to check out Tony’s Traveling Tales, borrow or purchase books, pick up a copy of the library newsletter, and learn more about the library’s apps and digital resources.

Nature Inspired Photography (Cathy Coldiron) will join the market this week as our community guest. Cathy, a native of Fayette County, plans to bring various sized prints of her photography for sale. Most of her beautiful photos were captured in or near Fayette County and showcase birds, animals, butterflies, moths, flowers, and trees.

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.
