Market on Main ready to greet new season


Somerset —

Starting at 6 p.m., the market will feature musical entertainment. This Thursday, Kevin Dalton and Tommy Minton are scheduled to perform. There will also be free yoga instruction at 5 p.m. thanks to Nourish Yoga Community of Somerset available at the event.
Among the items typically available from producers around the region are meat products, fruits and vegetables, breads and pastries, clothing and crafts, and much more.
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.”
