Last Open Air Market for the Season is Saturday


This coming Saturday October 3 is the final market for the 2015 Season.
The weather is supposed to be rainy and cool, and St. James is calling as well, but please grab your umbrellas and come out and support our farmers who will be there and have been there every Saturday throughout the 2015 season, traveling as far as 2 hours away to offer their Kentucky Proud products to us lucky Beechmontonians!

Also, the new pork producer, Red Dirt Hill Farms, who has been a guest the past two weeks of Nelson Escobar, La Minga Farm, is planning to set up as a regular producer next season. We have had a hard time attracting and keeping a meat producer at our market, and they are traveling from the Horse Cave area, so please support them if you are a carnivore!!! They are also collecting contact information from folks to deliver during this winter.

2016 Market Season will begin mid-June!!
Thanks to all market patrons for your support!!!

Congratulations to our Favorite Farmer Winner Hank Mercer and the first runner up Pendelton Farms!

Local farmers will also be on site with fresh produce.
