Paducah Farmers’ Market—Calling all local gardeners, bakers, artisans and businesses
The 2018 Farmers’ Market season will begin April 21 and run thru the end of October from 7:30 am to 1 pm, Monday thru Saturday. During the week, there is a limited number of vendors, but a full group of vendors arrives each Saturday. Come join us at 2nd and Monroe in downtown Paducah.
Vendors will be selling many homegrown products, made right here in our region, including produce, baked goods, soap and other artisan goods. The County Extension office has deemed “local” a 300 mile radius from the location of the farmers’ market. Also enjoy Celebration Saturdays— a time where community artisans, gardeners, and businesses come together to showcase and sell local products that make Paducah the best city to eat, play, and live in!
Community Garden Plots
The community garden is located at 14th and Madison in the Pat & Jim Brockenborough Rotary Health Park. Although the garden is located in the historic Fountain Ave neighborhood, you do not have to live in the community to reserve a garden plot there. The community garden gives people an opportunity to grow their own produce without the worry of lack of space in their own yard. Parks & Recreation Department crews till and prep our community garden prior to the growing season each year. The soil levels are checked and regulated if needed to make sure you have an optimum base for your plants to grown. There are rules and regulations that go along with reserving a plot including only picking from your plot, maintaining your plot throughout the season, and only growing non-invasive types of plants, among others.
