Aramini was pleased to see an initially unfamiliar public — “People were skeptical,” she noted of last year’s earliest events — turn in favor of what Market on Main is doing and is eager to see what this summer will bring, as the market becomes more of a community onto itself.
“I think interest has definitely grown,” said Aramini, who also organized the Kentucky Green Living Fair earlier this year. “I think people are excited to connect with other people. Market on Main gave people the opportunity to do that. You come and meet the people growing the food to feed your family.
“The market is about local food and supporting small businesses,” she added, “but it’s just an enjoyable time and I think people are getting excited about that.”
