County farmers’ markets continue through October

Berea’s market then moves indoors

BEREA — The Berea Farmers’ Market is open every Tuesday 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. and every Saturday 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. on the front lawn of St. Joseph Hospital, 305 Estill Street.

The market features more than 20 regulars, but may sometimes include up to 40 vendors, said  Therese Hildebrand, market manager.

While many vendors sell locally grown fruits and vegetables, the market offers a wide range of products, such as: baked goods, granola, flowers, beef, pork, chicken, turkey, baskets, art, natural soaps and body lotions.

The Berea Farmers’ Market will continue to operate at its outdoor location through October, Hildebrand said. However, an indoor venue is yet to be determined and will be announced on the website (bereafarmersmarket.org) or at the market before the move.

The Berea Farmers’ Market also is looking for a new market manager to start in October when Hildebrand leaves for her new home in Florida, she said. Visit the website for details.

Madison County Farmer’s Market

The Madison County Farmers’ Market will continue through early-October at its two locations.

On Tuesdays and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to noon, the market is open in the Lowe’s parking lot off the Eastern Bypass.

On Thursday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., the market is open on Eastern Kentucky University’s campus, but the location has been moved from the parking lot between Dupree and Palmer residence halls to the area in front of the Keen Johnson Building (near the Daniel Boone statue).
