Pedal Power Project

We’ll be raffling off 3 ‘almost new’ bicycles at the market, on Saturday, August 10.  These bikes are really beautiful.  Tickets will cost $5 each.  When we have sold 100 tickets we’ll close the raffle.

All the money will go to buy bicycle parts like tubes, tires, brakes, etc. for the Pedal Power Project – a very worthwhile project which rehabs used bikes which are given to refugee families.

Be sure to stop and taste the different varieties, then vote for your favorite. There is no charge. All of the heirlooms are donated by the farmers and vendors at the market.

Saluting Our Founding Vendors

In an era when trust, goodwill, and a cooperative spirit are not always part of a business model, the St. Matthews Farmers Market wants to recognize those founding farmers and vendors who put their faith in its existence and continue to demonstrate those qualities.

When the idea of the market was planted 7 years ago, it was clear that having good vendors would be crucial to its success. Since the market was untested, vendors were taking a chance by signing up to participate. Fortunately, this group did and they are still part of the market. Without them, and the others who have joined since then, Saturday mornings in St. Matthews would be a bit duller!
