Handy list! I didn't know Norton Commons had a farmers' market. Do they sell plastic fruit? :mrgreen:

I think the NC Farmers market info is wayyyyy out of date unless there has been a new development. Two or three years ago the NC folks ran off the farmers market when a market called Scott's or Scotty's opened out there, as it was "competition." Eye roll. Scotty's is no longer. The majority of the farmers and vendors are now at the Westport Rd. Baptist Church market on Saturday mornings.

Yeah, the so-called "St Matthews farmers market" on weekday afternoons is actually a truck that parks (with permission) behind St. Matthew's Episcopal Church, and could probably have been distinguised from the big one at Beargrass Christian.

I didn't want to crap all over style blueprint after TP's kindness in posting. Even a flawed list is useful. But I've seen some other very careless stuff come from that source. Is it a print publication with an online presence, or a Web-only publication?

Sorry for the faulty post! It's a web-only publication that I think is national but customized for the local market. Not sure who the local publisher would be. I get it on email because they do a Monday profile and occasionally I know who the person is and want to congratulate them.

No need for apologies. We're picking at minutiae, but the overall idea of a comprehensive list is good.
