The 2015 Harvest Market is Now Open!

Grab you sunglasses and straw hat and head to the Pleasant Valley Campus for to the 2nd annual Harvest Market!

Just ask grandma and she'll tell ya, nothing tastes better than locally grown produce! While grandpa would say, nothing feels better than supporting the local community! 

In either case, back by popular demand, the Harvest Market returns as a joint venture between Owensboro Health and the Owensboro Regional Farmers' Market. 

Based on last years' successful event, you can expect this year's market to be even bigger, better and fresher!

New this year to the Harvest Market is the Fresh Farm Map! Travel with your map as you visit different vendors, ask for a punch! (Y'all don't have to pay anything, we promise). Once your card is fully punched, return it to the Owensboro Health One Health tent to receive a prize!

Now, the Harvest Market is not just about good eats...it is also an opportunity for folks to learn about and try new foods that offer your taste buds a whole slew of new adventures! So, don't forget as you venture through all the savory in-season produce, to ask each farmer for their tips on preparing their products for that full, tummy-loving flavor and nutrition!

Harvest Market takes place every Wednesday from 1:30 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. thru September 2, 2015.
