Plans for BOTBFM 2013 Continue to Develop

Plans for the 2013 Bounty of the Barrens Farmers' Market continue to evolve. First, you should know that we have one more winter market, on April 13th, at the Cooperative Extension Service office on West Main Street. This will be an exciting day as it will also be the Extension Service's Earth Expo Day. Our vendors will be out in the parking lot along with many other exciting exhibits that day. We hope you will be there.

The next weekend, April 20, will be our opening day on the Glasgow Courthouse Square, and what a day we have planned! That morning there are a number of exciting community events. The Butterflies for Maddie Run, and a new event, the Tour de Farm will also be that morning. The Tour de Farm will begin at WKU Glasgow Campus and it will be a great opportunity for you to walk, jog, cycle, push your stroller, allow  your kids to ride tricycles, in other words, a great opportunity to be outside on a short jaunt from WKU to the Glasgow Square. And when you get to the Square, BOTBFM will be open for the business of bringing fresh, healthy, local food to your table. There will also be celebratory speeches, including our Secretary of Agriculture, James Comer.

We also hope you will take a few minutes and view the short video above. What he has to say is right in line with the way we think about food and the opportunities for our local farmers to provide food that is simply better than anything you can get at a supermarket. Please take a few minutes to view it and then mark your calendars for these important dates in April.
