This weekend’s Fayette County Farmers’ Market is the next to the last of the Saturday markets for the 2016 season, with Oct. 22 being the final Saturday market.
Richard Miller’s A.I.M. Donut truck will be joining us for the last time this year as they help to usher in the fall with warm donuts and hot coffee. The area’s first widespread frost looms ever so close and thus much of the produce production and harvest will soon cease. Come and visit us before it’s too late, and as always we thank the community for their patronage!
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.
