Children can also have fun at the Farm Market

By Katrina Bush - For the Record-Herald

While parents shop, children may come make a “Buckeye Necklace” or bracelet and learn about the “Buckeye tree” with Altrusan Debra Grover this Saturday at the info booth children’s table at the Fayette County Farm Market. As happens each Saturday, children receive a market coupon prize for finding the Peas-in-the-Pod hidden in vendor booths (one prize per child each week).

Grover will also have tickets ($10) for the Altrusa Loving Spoonsful Tasting luncheon, featuring 60-plus homemade member recipes being served on Saturday, Oct. 21, at 11:30 a.m. at the Commission on Aging. All Altrusa funds go back into the community for service projects and financial support.

Please note that parking for the Saturday market is available street side or in the same parking lot the Market occupies at the north side of Kiger’s Law office. If you are purchasing large or heavy items, the vendors are more than willing to assist customers to their cars with purchases. We continue to be a neighborhood market, appreciating and supporting the customers.

The Market is open every Saturday morning from 8:30 to noon and is located in the municipal parking lot on the corner of South Main and East East streets in Washington C.H. SNAP EBT food benefit cards, Senior Farm Market coupons and credit/debit cards are accepted—stop by the FM “Info and Children’s Booth” (beside the Sunshine Cleaners) for assistance. Those using the SNAP EBT card for produce receive matching dollar VeggieSNAP tokens ($1 for $1) for additional fruits and vegetables. So,”buy one, get one” for fruit and vegetables, up to $10 EVERY market day.
