Elsewhere in today's newspaper, Agriculture Commissioner Richie Farmer urges you to shop at farmers' markets.
The occasion of Mr. Farmer's enthusiasm is Farmers' Market Week (Aug. 6-12), which seems like a pretty good thing to celebrate. Fresh tomatoes, peppers, sweet corn, apples, peaches. What's not to like?
There are 103 farmers' markets in Kentucky, according to the aptly named Mr. Farmer, who should know. At least two of those exist in Lincoln County.
The farmer's market on Main Street in Crab Orchard is open Tuesday and Saturday from 8 a.m. until sell out.
The Stanford farmers' market is at the corner of Somerset Street and Highway 27 South. It's open Tuesday and Friday from 8 a.m. until sell out.
