So much going on this weekend in Fayette County! Consider stopping in at the Fayette County Farmers Market to get your weekend produce and assorted local food needs before heading off to the County Airport for the exciting “Toast to Summer” event, the county fairgrounds for the Scott Antique Markets’ event, or one of the other events going on locally this Saturday.

Most vendors are selling by 8:15 a.m. and are ready to serve you. I must mention that Alana Walters and Beth Day have added a “fair trade” coffee to their product line. The farmers that tend and harvest these coffee beans receive a much larger percentage of the final retail price than those farmers that supply conventional national coffee brands. The roasted beans are fresh and the resulting brewed coffee has a most pleasant aroma and taste….perfect with sourdough donuts!

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