Have you ever tried to split a blue hubbard squash with a dull ax? Well, maybe you haven’t…but it’s not easy! Never fear, Tom will be here! Tom McMurray will be at the Fayette County Farmers’ Market Saturday to sharpen your garden tools, from axes and mattocks to clippers and loppers. We are absent a few vendors this week but many have indicated they will return next week.

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 in Washington C.H.

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.
