The Boyd County Farmers Market returns to the King's Daughters campus
in downtown Ashland Thursday, June 7, beginning at 2 p.m. For the first
market of the year, we expect to see asparagus, lettuce, strawberries,
green onions and more.
The market will be open from 2 p.m. until sell-out, which is usually around
5 p.m. With a selection of fresh fruit, vegetables and other locally grown
merchandise, the Farmers Market is a great place to pick up healthy foods.
Vendors accept cash and cards.
The large white tent where the market usually takes place suffered damage
during a recent storm and is being replaced. However, the first few markets
will see local farmers using their own, smaller tents. The location along
Central Avenue between 24th and 25th streets remains the same.
The market will run from June through October. A second Boyd County market
also takes place Saturday mornings at KYOVA Mall. To learn more about
becoming a part of the Farmers Market, contact the Boyd County Extension
office at (606) 739-5184.
