Updated Location - Farmers Market in the Midway

UPDATED LOCATION - It's in front of the Stables Building--where we had Merchants & Music last year. You can turn in at the parking lot in front of the Pub. The stables building is on your right along River Road. It's brick and has boarded up windows. The city is working on a swap with the Army for the building.

The Fort Thomas Renaissance has announced a new farmer's market in the Midway district in the home of the old ceramics shop between the Midway Cafe and Fort Thomas Pub. Our family is a big fan of Findlay Market on Saturdays and we hope to use this as a mid-week shopping trip if we miss Findlay or need additional items.

Here is the announcement:

Earth Mother Market is a group of certified organic and certified naturally grown farmers who will be selling their products each Wednesday beginning May 20 from 3:00-7:00 p.m.. The Market will be held at the Stables Building at 1038 S. Fort Thomas Avenue, between River Road and the VA Nursing Home in the Historic Midway District. Rain or shine, the Market will be open.

Some of the items for sale at the grand opening will be eggs, salad greens, Swiss chard, vegetable plants, perennial bedding plants, herb plants, asparagus, rhubarb, all natural and goat milk soap. As the season progresses, more selection will be available.

Please come check out the market on May 20 and then visit our other businesses in the Historic Midway District.

This is fantastic news! We have needed a market for so long. No more traveling to find fresh produce and farm goodies!

Darrin, Just one tiny error--it's not at the ceramic/hardware shop. It's in front of the Stables Building--where we had Merchants & Music last year. You can turn in at the parking lot in front of the Pub. The stables building is on your right along River Road. It's brick and has boarded up windows. We are working on a swap with the Army to obtain that building.
