The Meade County Farmer’s Market opened this past Saturday. The market has steadily grown over the past few years and this year’s market is projected to be the best one yet. Located at the Extension Pavilion on Old Ekron Road, the market will open Tuesdays from 11 a.m. -2 p.m., Saturdays 9 a.m.-Noon and Sundays 1p.m.-3 p.m. They do have a Facebook page under Meade County Farmer’s Market to keep up to date on happenings and product availability. While you are liking the market, like the Meade County Family and Consumer Sciences page to find out about events and classes going on at the extension office.
As in the past, extension employees will be at the market on Tuesdays beginning in June. The power of produce program will begin in Mid-June and we have lots of great recipes year-round at the office, so stop by and check us out. There is still time to sign up for the Recipes Club’s July mailing, so contact us with your name and mailing address. In the meantime, if you would like a free kitchen utensil, stop by the extension office, and tell them you read my newspaper article this week. One item per household please.
The extension staff have been available throughout the pandemic and our foyer doors have been open for pick up and drop off. The main doors of the extension office are now open. You are welcome to come in but will be required to wear a mask and sign in for contact tracing. We are here to help, so don’t hesitate to contact us at 270-422-4958.
