2019 Downtown Farmers Market
The Hopkinsville-Christian County Downtown Farmers Market will be open every Wednesday and Saturday from 7:00 AM – 1:00 PM beginning April 27th and ending October 30th. Christmas Market on the Square will be held Saturday, November 30th from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM and Saturday, December 14th from 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM.
The Downtown Farmers Market is located in Founder’s Square parking lot at the corner of 9th & Main Streets in Historic Downtown Hopkinsville. It is home to local vendors who specialize in agricultural products. The Downtown Farmers Market is a Kentucky Proud Market so you are guaranteed the area’s best selection of locally grown and produced fruits, veggies, home-canned goods, home-baked goods, honey and honey-related products, bedding plants, perennials, cut-flowers, herbs, specialty products and hand-crafted items. We have a variety of proteins available at the Market which include farm fresh eggs, chickens (whole, liver, gizzards, feet), cuts of pork and beef, platter or jowl bacon, fresh ground pork, hot/mild sausage, beef brisket, Steaks (Ribeye, New York Strip, Filet, Flat Iron, Sirloin) and even rabbit meat.
We have a new initiative this year!
Cooking from scratch has become less common – some might even say it’s a lost art. The Downtown Farmers Market and Christian County Extension Office are collaborating to bring to the Farmers Market on site cooking demonstrations by local celebrities who are chefs by trade or practice culinary art for fun! Each chef will whip up a Kentucky Proud Recipe using locally sourced seasonal vegetables, fruits, and proteins available weekly at the Market. We will host several free cooking demonstrations where participants will be able to sample the finished dishes while supplies last. Readymade food boxes with the delicious, nutritional, and affordable ingredients as well as the recipes patrons just tasted will be available for purchase in limited quantities at the Market on Cooking Demonstration Days. The “Local Taught Market Bought” series will run through October 26th on the following dates and times:
