Bounty of the Barrens Market - Inside on January 8

Happy New Year 2011! All of us at Sustainable Glasgow join in wishing you, and our community, a new year full of improvements and possibilities.

Now that the holiday season is over, we are all ready for warmer weather and the things we enjoy outside. For the last couple of years, one thing that many in our community have associated with spring and summer weather is Bounty of the Barrens Market. Even though we have bold new ideas and plans for the outdoor market this spring, you do not have to wait until spring to enjoy the market!

That’s right, due to our wonderful partner, Barren County Cooperative Extension Service, we have accomplished our goal of providing the market experience throughout the year. You can get a break from winter, and get started on those new year’s resolutions to lose weight and eat better food by coming to the Cooperative Extension office this Saturday for the January edition of Bounty of the Barrens Market. From 8:00 a.m. to noon on Saturday January 8, you can buy local meats, cheese, milk, eggs, and many other foods and crafts produced right here in our community.

The location is out West Main Street just beyond the Dana plant. Going out of town the Cooperative Extension office is on your right and signs will be posted to help you find the way. The market is inside in a temperature controlled facility there and, well, it is like finding a little bit of spring time during the dead of winter! Many of the vendors you got to know at the outdoor market will be there Saturday at the Extension Service office and we hope you will come. The market isn’t the market without you being there!

So, go ahead and mark your calendar to attend the market on January 8, and keep watching here for exciting information about our plans for the outdoor version of Bounty of the Barrens Market 2011. It is going to be amazing!
