  • One-day farmers market planned

    The LaRue County Farmers Market did not open this summer due to low interest by producers.

    However, several farmers from LaRue and neighboring counties have committed to an Ag Market Day on Thursday, Aug. 29. The event, sponsored by the LaRue County Extension Service, will offer several free activities along with the chance to purchase fresh produce.

    “A lot of vendors couldn’t commit to a weekly farmers market,” said Extension Agent David Harrison. “We wanted to have an alternative.”
