Louisville has over 20 farmers markets around the city! A farmers market is when 2 or more farmers or producers sell their own agricultural products (fruit, vegetables, meat, fish, poultry, dairy or grains) to the community at a fixed location.
These community-run buying clubs create space for residents to meet their farmer and purchase healthy, fresh, affordable produce every 2 weeks during the summer and fall!
Here are the basics: a farmer offers “shares” to the public. Typically the share consists of a box of vegetables, but other farm products may be included. Consumers purchase a share (aka a “subscription”) and in return receive a box of seasonal produce each week during the farming season. This benefits both the farmer and the consumer.
