April 23, 2012 - PRLog -- The award winning St. Matthews Farmers’ Market, located in the heart of St Matthews at Beargrass Christian Church, 4100 Shelbyville Road, will begin its sixth season on Saturday, May 12 from 8 am until 12 noon. The weekly market takes place through September 29.

“We are proud to be the Kentucky Farmers’ Market of the Year - Urban Market Winner, and named Best Farmers’ Market by Louisville Magazine,” said Dale Mercker, Committee Chair. "With over 60 vendors and 2000 visitors each week, we provide a great Saturday morning activity for the whole community to come together."
