In the following video, Special Events Coordinator Molly Tomasallo-Johnson provides an overview of the Paducah Homegrown Farmers' Market located in downtown Paducah.
New vendors and returning vendors must register with the Paducah Parks office at 1400 H.C. Mathis Drive in Paducah.
To be considered for a booth, Paducah Parks and Recreation is inviting new vendors for the 2017 Paducah Homegrown Farmers’ Market to attend the mandatory vendor information meeting on Monday, March 20 at 5:30 in the conference room of the Parks and Recreation facility located at 1400 H.C. Mathis Drive. At this meeting, information will be provided about the application process, hours of operation, and fees in addition to guidelines from the Kentucky Department of Agriculture. If a potential vendor cannot make it to this meeting, contact the Special Events Coordinator so to discuss their product, the guidelines, and the application process. Returning vendors and those who participated in the Holiday Market do not need to attend this meeting.
Once a month, May through September, you don't want to miss the markets' "Celebration Saturdays." These days highlight market vendors and their goods, along with many activities such as childrens' craft tables, acoustic music, balloon animals, face painting, food sampling, cooking demonstrations, plant and farm education, as well as local businesses that may wish to host a booth to spotlight their local products or services.
