Farmers' Market Brings People Downtown
A few years ago I was delighted that the farmer's market had added some variety with vendors selling fresh flowers, goat cheese, bread, pies, etc. For the past couple summers they have been back to the basics. While I wouldn't want to go through a summer without tomatoes, corn, and cucumbers I can't help but wonder what happened to the goat cheese and bread.
Many farmers markets in the Louisville metro area have expanded their offerings in the past few years. It seems like more variety of goods draw more people.
The farmers market in Bloomington, IN with 60 vendors draws 3,500 customers per week. In addition to produce the vendors carry plants, arts and crafts, and baked goods. Live entertainment helps draw in customers.
