Twice a week farmers, craftsmen, artisans, gardeners and hungry shoppers flock to the Community Farmers Market on Nashville Road in Bowling Green. On Tuesdays from 2 p.m. until 6 p.m. and on Saturdays from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m., the market is buzzing with activity. From kimchi to ice cream and everything in between, the products sold are unique and made or grown with care.

At a stand in the Farmers Market, SNAP and other food vouch- ers can be exchanged for tokens at double their value (up to the first $20), and these can be spent on produce, food and drink. The Market runs year round and is just getting back into the Spring swing with hundreds of customers coming out for this Saturday’s deals.
