Farmer's Fair in Covington

Covington is hosting a two-day Farmer's Fair next month celebrating locally grown food. The event runs Saturday, Sept. 26th from 5-10 p.m. and Sunday, Sept. 27 from 11 a.m.-4 p.m.

From the press release:

"The intersection of Court Street and Park Place in Covington, Kentucky will transform into a Farmers’ Fair on Saturday, September 26th and Sunday, September 27th.

Saturday evening, 5pm-10pm, is the kick off celebration and features sampling of local foods prepared by local chefs, tastings of local beers and wine, and live local music.

Sunday, 11am-4pm, is a farmers’ market and more. Local farmers will be selling locally grown and raised food and cottage producers will be selling minimally processed local foods such as honey, syrup, jams and bread. There will be food tastings, local music, and educational information and activities for adults and children alike.

"We're celebrating food grown and raised right here in our Greater Cincinnati area. There's so much available, we want to connect urban consumers with local growers and encourage people to utilize the wonderful resources in our region. Eating this way is good for our health and for our economy," states event chair Valerie Taylor.

The events are part of the Great Outdoor Weekend, are open to the public and admission is free. "We really want to stress our connection to food and the land on which it is grown and it just makes so much sense to celebrate this in conjunction with the Great Outdoor Weekend. People can literally taste their connection to the great outdoors, how delicious!” says co-chair Susan Miller-Stigler.
