Now that the weather is getting better can anyone tell me if there are any good farmers markets in Louisville?

Thanks.

We won't be moving to the Louisville area until June, but from what I understand, the Hardin County Farmers Market and the St. Matthews Farmers Market (http://www.beargrass.org/market/ - broken link) are both quite nice.

I'd love to hear about others, as well.

I usually go to the St. Matthews farmer's market. I've always found really fresh, ripe produce and vegetables there for a good price. Norton Commons also has a farmers market I go to sometimes. Norton Commons would be closer to you, Delaney72, it is right on the Jeff. Co./Oldham Co. line.

Any excuse I have to head into St. Matthews I'll take, so I'll be happy to make the trip! I love St. Matthews.....sigh

Yeah its a great part of town, have you been to the new Molly Malone's there yet? Next time you are in St. Matts have lunch there, and then go down the street to Plehn's Bakery (next to Jimmy Johns). They have some awesome pastries/cookies/cake/pie. I could go crazy in there but I try to restrain myself.

Thanks.
This question has come up many times. Please take note all. There are TONS of them:

Find a Farmers' Market - I Want To - LouisvilleKy.gov

I enjoy Beechmont, St Matthews, Highlands, downtown, and Phoenix Hill.

There are several others in the metro area. Here is one I enjoyed:

.: New Albany Farmers Market :.

Use them to explore the metro area. If you think St Matthews is so great, and it is nice, you really need to come and see more of the city's other urban areas, especially the Highlands, Crescent Hill, and Clifton.

Thanks for the info. Heading to the Highlands this weekend. I've been there once before, (we've only lived here 3 mos and most of that time the weather hasn't been great) but looking forward to seeing and experiencing more of it. I'll check out Cresent Hill and CLifton as well. Thanks again.

No problem. I think you will enjoy that Highlands Farmers market.

F.A.T. Friday Hop

I would also make a point to visit the above events. They occur once a month. They are very popular in spring. It may be the best way to explore two other very nice urban areas. Talk to people, get advice, and explore your city! You won't be wanting to leave then. I have lived in 7 major metros now and have traveled to almost 80 (my goal is to visit all top 100 largest by 2012). I can tell you that the urban areas in Louisville are very nice and not normally found in a metro area under 2 million such as this.
