The Carnegie Public Library Kid’s garden club will be visiting the Fayette County Farmers Market today and will offer several varieties of seasonal produce and fruit to taste.

We invite all those who would like to also participate. We will select the produce, wash and cut it, and offer it “raw” for you to taste. Time for the tasting will be 9:30 to 11 a.m. Local representatives of the “Are you TOUGH ENOUGH to wear pink?” charity horse show will be at the market to offer raffle tickets and event-related items for sale, and to provide show bills for the horse show.

All proceeds from the horse show, raffle and memorabilia sales go toward cancer patient assistance funding. The horse show is Sept. 18, 19 and 20 at the Roberts Arena in Clinton County. Raffled items include a “Four Star” two horse slant trailer, a “Bad Boy” zero turn mower, and a horse training saddle.

The Market is located in the municipal parking lot on the corner of South Main and East East streets and as always SNAP EBT food benefit cards and credit/debit cards are accepted.
