    To Do: Upcoming Lexington Markets in June

    May 25, 2018

    What does the coming of summer mean for a Lexingtonian?

    Why, the return of everyone's favorite markets of course! Markets are a lovely place to chat with up and coming artists, designers, and small business owners in one convenient, open-air place. These are events that you really don't want to miss if you're a fan of shopping, browsing art, or simply getting out of the house and stretching your legs for a bit. There's always something interesting to see, even if you're not in the market to buy. Plus, many markets have food trucks and vendors come by to sell their delicious recipes, making markets an excellent place to stop by for a few hours in the afternoon or evening while also enjoying an inexpensive meal.

    So below, we've compiled a short list of some of the regular markets that are starting up again now that warmer weather has come, so you won't have to miss out on any of the dates!

    Nothing quite says summer fun like fresh fruits and veggies, and there is plenty of that for all at the Lexington Farmers Market. Come support farmers while tasting the finest produce Lexington has to offer. By purchasing locally, you can ensure maximum freshness of the product, talk directly to the growers themselves about what chemicals might be used, bolster the economy, and support sustainable practices by limiting the need for transportation. The event is held in various locations throughout the summer, so everyone is sure to be able to shop around for the best in-season produce around.

    New to the classic Lexington Farmers Market this year is the Makers Market, which will be held during select Farmers Market dates this summer at the Cheapside Park Downtown location. In addition to your fresh produce, check out the wares that local artists have to sell!
