Memorial Day weekend at the Market


By David Persinger - Fayette County Farmers Market



Several of your Memorial Day weekend dining needs can be found at the Fayette County Farmers Market this Saturday.

From mounds of strawberries, chicken cuts and chicken bratwurst, angel food cakes, pies and other desserts, our vendors will have these and other items for your holiday grilling and dining events. Be safe this long holiday weekend and remember your loved ones and family.

The following list contains the names and products of the vendors that expect to set up for Saturday’s 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. As in previous years, 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.
