The Metcalfe County Farmers’ Market has reopened for the season, with more to offer the community.

“We have several new vendors. The Pie Hole Bakery has joined the market and has some amazing baked bread, cinnamon rolls, cakes, and other goodies. We also have Sarah Rothrock who makes Native American jewelry and fry bread, as well as sugar free cookies,” said Rose Saltsman, Market Manager.

The usual finds will also be available, including fresh produce, greens, spinach, kale, lettuce, bedding plants, seed potatoes, a large variety of tomatoes and pepper plants. Seeds, flowers, succulents and house plants, honey, maple syrup, jams, jellies, and handmade wooden crafts.

“We will be accepting senior FMNP vouchers, (Distributed by Bowling Park) and WIC FMNP vouchers (distributed by Local Health Dept) and SNAP/EBT cards. We are also still participating in the Kentucky Double Dollars Program. This is for senior and WIC vouchers and EBT purchases,” Saltsman said.

“Also new this year, we have a vendor who can accept Garden vouchers. These can be used to purchase seeds and plants at the market.”

The Metcalfe County Farmers’ Market is open Every Friday Morning from 8-1 rain or shine, though the last Friday in October.

Beginning the first Tuesday in June, the market will be open on Tuesdays until the last Tuesday in September from 1-5pm. To see what the market has available each week, follow them on Facebook.
