LaGrange Farmer’s Market & Artisans

The LaGrange Farmers’ Market & Artisans is opening for the season this weekend! On Saturday, May 9th, the market will reopen, but like most public places, there are some new safety measures in place due to COVID-19.

They are open on Saturdays 9am-1pm beginning in May through October 10th.  We enjoy visiting the market because it allows us to support our community farmers and artisans and go home with great products. The market has a range of items from fresh farm beef, pork, cheese products, flowers, produce, dog treats, baked goods, jewelry and more. There is a list of vendors on their website here, but check their Facebook page for weekend updates.

We love the atmosphere at the market. The peace of an early morning walk around the market is refreshing. On some mornings you might get to hear a band playing or some songs being sung by local artists and young musicians. The train rolling down the middle of Main Street also offers an unique experience while perusing the booths.

Beginning on May 9, 2020, the market is asking visitors to follow a list of guidelines while shopping. These guidelines are in place to help ensure the safety of the vendors and shoppers and align with social distancing. Below are the guidelines from the LaGrange Farmers’ Market.

Some of the vendors are offering pre-ordering to make purchasing and picking up product faster and safer. Again, following their Facebook page is your best bet for updated information. Luckily, since the market is on the Courthouse Square, there is some green space to help visitors spread out and enjoy their purchases.

There are also wonderful shops along Main Street in Downtown LaGrange that visitors can shop. (Retail stores are set to open on May 20th, but many have great window displays that are worth checking out before the 20th.) Downtown LaGrange has several restaurants and a coffee shop that have carry-out ordering available.

The LaGrange Farmers’ Market & Artisans is located at 100 Main Street LaGrange, Ky 40031
