The Hazard-Perry County Farmers Market is scheduled to open again next week and run through late October.
The farmers market first opened in the Perry County Park eight years ago, allowing local and regional farmers an opportunity to sell produce and handmade products. Last year, 31 members traveled from areas like Campton, Hyden, and Manchester, as well as Perry County, to offer produce for sale.
This year’s market will open on Wednesday, May 15 at picnic shelters four and five in the Perry County Park. The market will be open every Wednesday and Saturday from 7 to 3 p.m. through Oct. 30. Cancellation dates this year are June 1, Aug. 24, and Sept. 28.
Anyone wishing to sign up to sell at the market can contact the Hazard-Perry County Tourism office at 606-487-1580 or 1-888-857-5263. Membership is free.
