The Owensboro Regional Farmers Market is open from mid-April until the end of October at the corner of Triplett Street and Parrish Avenue here in town.
For now, the Market is open on Saturdays from 8am to 1pm. However, beginning in June, the Regional Market expands its hours to include Tuesday and Thursday mornings at the Triplett Street location.  And, from mid-May through August, the Market is also located at the Owensboro Health Regional Hospital on Wednesday afternoons from 1:30pm - 5:00pm.  Both locations have ample parking for your convenience.
If you're planning to visit the Owensboro Regional Farmers Market, please note that ALL vendors accept cash.  Most will accept personal checks and some will accept credit/debit cards. The Market also accepts SNAP/EBT payments.  These forms of payment are taken at the Market Information tent with the Market Manager.
This Saturday is opening day and the Market will host a special Earth Day Celebration!
