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.
