Customer Appreciation Day at Saturday’s Market


By David Persinger - Fayette County Farmers Market



To mark the closing of this season’s Saturday market, the Fayette County Farmers’ Market Association invites all its patrons and friends to join us this Saturday for hot mulled cider and hot dogs.

We truly appreciate the support shown by the community and all our patrons. On this, our final Saturday market, we welcome two new vendors: Mark and Karen Bentley of Bentley’s Pumpkins and Bob Lehnert of Lehnert Meats LLC. Bob samples from his gas grill and sells four varieties of pork bratwurst. Assorted decorative gourds and Indian corn will also be available. And for the impending cold weather, Hank White has a fresh supply of alpaca fibered products for your fall and winter comfort. We expect a variety of pumpkin-themed baked goods also.
