The Fayette County Farmers’ Market is opening for its 17th season this Saturday morning in historic downtown Washington C.H.
The market operates from 8:30 a.m. to noon every Saturday morning through Oct. 21 in the municipal parking lot at the corner of South Main and East streets. The market is also open on Wednesdays, starting May 17, in the TSC parking lot at 1650 Columbus Ave. from 4-7 p.m., through Sept. 20. Market representatives say they look forward to greeting their friends and neighbors once again this year as the farmers bring to market seasonal, local produce, meats and eggs, honey, and baked goods for your dining pleasure.
Strawberries, lettuce, green onions, radishes, some asparagus and rhubarb, and lots of honey are expected at Saturday’s market. There will be a pork producer at the market this year and there will be pork chops, ground pork, sausage patties and other pork products. Farm fresh eggs and whole chickens, chicken breasts and wings are in stock. Pies, cakes and other baked items will be there also. And…. YES, this week, warm donuts from the Miller Donut Truck!
Hand-finished wood items and painted tiles are just a couple of examples of the crafts that will be available weekly, as well as an essential oil vendor. Cash, credit and debit are accepted and all SNAP/EBT purchases will be matched up to $10 in free fruits and vegetables all season long. The market reminds you to EAT FRESH – EAT LOCAL!
