What a pleasant surprise when Starbucks reached out to us this week wanting to come to our market and introduce themselves to Fayette County. I understand they are opening a store in the outlet mall area in August.
Starbucks will be sampling iced coffee, iced tea or perhaps some of their signature ground coffee for you to brew at home. What a nice pairing with the warm sourdough donuts from AIM Specialty! Bring your friends, we will have tables and chairs for your visiting pleasure.
The following list contains the names and products of the vendors that expect to set up for the Saturday’s Fayette County Farmers Market. The market is open every Saturday morning from 8:30 a.m. to noon and 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. We are offering a new program called veggie SNAPS and it permits those who use a SNAP EBT card for food items to receive matching dollar tokens (one for one) for additional fruits and vegetables! It’s a BOGO for fruit and vegetables, up to $10 every market day. Be sure to ask David about the new veggie SNAPS produce program for SNAP EBT cards.
