Paducah Downtown Farmers’ Market Gets a Bit Smaller
Paducah Downtown Farmers’ Market patrons can expect fewer vendors this summer.
Paducah Renaissance Alliance Executive Director Lisa Thompson told city commissioners Tuesday only 10 to 15 farmers have registered for booths due to a liability insurance requirement for vendors. The market attracted more than 20 vendors in previous years.
Thompson also said PRA has reduced market days from six per week to three.
“By cutting the number of days, we’re hoping that will grow the amount of participation per day, and it would create more activity and more choice, and it would become a destination for people to come downtown and get their fresh fruits and vegetables,” she said.
However, because of the insurance requirement, local Amish farmers will not participate in this summer’s market.
