Stop At: 215 W Main St, Lexington, KY 40507, USA

Located in the heart of Downtown Lexington, Kentucky near the Historic Lexington Courthouse, this market location serves as the anchor market of the LFM and a weekend anchor to Main Street.

The Lexington Farmers’ Market operates a year-round market in Downtown Lexington in Cheapside Park and the area around the Historic Old Courthouse. While in the winter the number of growers that attend the market shrinks, by May the markets expands to over 50 farmers at seasonal locations that cover five days each week. Some of our farmers only come to the market during the peak seasons for their specialties, such as mid-summer for sweet corn or tomatoes, but others come year round with value-added or expanded product lines.
