Lemon shake-ups at Market Saturday

By David Persinger - The Record-Herald

Altrusan Debra Grover will serve fresh lemon shake-ups from the Market information booth this Saturday. These shake-ups are prepared from an old Texas family recipe which has been served at the Ohio State Fair for over 60 years.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Fayette County Farmers Market. Some green beans, carrots, cucumbers, a few peppers, and red potatoes hit the market this week.

The following list contains the names and products of the vendors that expect to set up for the Saturday’s 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. Its 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.
