Each week we publish a newsletter with stories about farmers, market makers, recipes, and updates on special events. We try to provide recipes inspired by what’s in season at the market that week. You can sign up on the home page of the website to receive this weekly email in your inbox. We only write once a week and only during market season (May to September). You can read past issues here https://us3.campaign-archive.com/home/?u=94b44300af8ea02dd116ae2b7&id=fe8db5dc8c
The 2019 Application for vendors and producers at the St Matthews Farmers Market is now available. (Use the link in this paragraph or use the top menu on this site to navigate to /About the Market/Vendor Application.)
Please note: February 8th is the deadline for submitting an application for the 2019 season. Applications received after the 8th will only be considered for an alternate position if a space is available.
The upcoming 2019 season will be the 13th season for the market which first opened in June 2007. The Market Committee and Beargrass Christian Church continue to be grateful and appreciative of all the producers and vendors who contribute to the market.

Thank you Edible Louisville for our Local Hero Award for Best Louisville Farmers Market! How do you define a “local hero”? Edible Louisville defines it as someone whose business offers high-quality local products and maintains high standards in social and environmental practices, food sourcing, regional economic impact and commitment to promoting a sustainable food system. Readers nominated two local heroes in each of seven categories: one from the Bluegrass region and one from Louisville (Jefferson County). People from all over the state responded with enthusiasm! We are uber grateful. Thank you Edible Louisville! Check it out here:
