On Saturday, May 1, The Robertson County Farmer’s Market will be opening for the spring and summer. The market will be held every Saturday from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. until Saturday, Aug. 28, at the fairgrounds.

The market’s farm vendors include Cedar Groves Farm, Bernard Farm, New Folks Farm, Jonathan Mosely Family Farms, Pearson Farms, Hancock Family Farm, Heads Farm, Star Farms and Good Shepherd Farms.

Other vendors include Sis’s Fried Pies & Baked Goods, Grain + Honey Bake Shop, Corbin Creek Greenhouse, Kenny Bob’s Foods, Jo’s Flower Company, Iron Kettle Bath Company, LS Dazzlin Designs, Barns and Burley Candles and Southside Drugs.

“We are a Robertson County producer market only. That makes us unique among the markets in the local area. We’re really proud of that and proud to be able to offer such a diverse product selection from very talented farmers and makers right here in the County,” said market President Hannah Sadler.

After the market season, Robertson County Farmer’s Market, on Saturday, Sept.18, will be hosting a new event: The Farm to Table Dinner. The event will be at Kellys Jubilee, located at 3052 Old New Cut Road in Springfield.

The event will be catered by a local company, and on the night of the dinner, the farmers will have their products purchased by the caterer to make meals for attendees.

According to Sadler, the Robertson County Farmer’s Market works with the County Fair Board and will be able to use the fairgrounds free of charge.

“We are a farmers market for the community. It is our job as the farmers market and as vendors to provide the community with the freshest and most locally grown produce and products that they will ever be able to find. We’re hoping customers find everything they need from us on Saturday mornings when they come out to shop,” said Sadler.
