Starting this week, the Lexington-Fayette County Health Department will bring farmers from the Bluegrass Farmers Market and the Lexington Farmers Market together to give health department patients, clients, visitors and staff, as well as the entire community, a chance to buy fresh fruits and vegetables. The market will be held from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at these dates and locations:
▪ Wednesday, 650 Newtown Pike (main health department location)
▪ July 5, 2433 Regency Road (health department’s south location)
▪ July 12, 650 Newtown Pike
▪ July 19, 2433 Regency Road
▪ July 26, 650 Newtown Pike
The Newtown Pike location will offer items from four to six farmers, and the Regency Road location will feature two to four farmers.
“Both sites are open to everyone, and we encourage Lexington residents to take part,” health department spokesman Kevin Hall said in a press release. “If you’ve never visited your health department, this is a good chance to see public health in action.”
While some vendors may accept other forms of payment, participants are encouraged to bring cash. For more information, go to Lexingtonhealthdepartment.org.
