St. Matthews Farmer’s Market

After my race on Saturday, I hopped back in my car and headed straight for the St. Matthews Farmer’s Market.

I’d been wanting to go to one since they began a few weeks ago and I finally made it!

This one is pretty small, so I did a quick lap to get a feel for the place and see if there was anything I needed to go back for.

Shelbyville, KY is a mere 30 minute drive from my house, plus Harmony Fields Farm grows all their stuff ORGANIC! It doesn’t get much better than local AND organic.

This week, they had strawberries, which I was told were picked on Friday, and sugar snap peas, plus some leafy greens.

This cost me $9 but there is more in those containers than it looks like. Plus to know I’m supporting a very local farm that grows organic produce, not ingesting nasty pesticides, and the taste…totally worth it.  

I also found the Cake Flour booth. They are a local bakery that is kind enough to feature some vegan baked goods, like this vegan oatmeal spice cookie I picked up!

It was delicious! I kind of wish I hadn’t eaten it already, ha ha. I will just have to go back next time!

I’m hoping to check out some other Farmer’s Markets as the summer goes on but the St. Matthews Farmer’s Market was a good place to start.
