Farmer's Market finds permanent home

A permanent home for a farmer's market in Fayette County was dedicated today.

Several area dignitaries were on hand to help officially open the Rick Rutledge Pavilion on Virginia Avenue in Oak Hill. The structure recognizes Rick Rutledge, a renowned community leader and local farmer who also helps supply food to the Fayette County school system. The pavilion is the result of collaboration between the city of Oak Hill and Fayette County Commission. The opening means guests now have an established location  to sell their home grown products.

"There's a good demand for fresh produce, fresh plants. Things that are organic and local made items."

"It's a good day for oak hill. I'm excited about it. It's commerce. It's a social activity. It's a lot of good things happening in one."

The farmer's market will be open on Tuesdays from 3-6 in the afternoon. The town of Fayetteville will continue with its market on Saturdays from 7-30 to 11-30 am.
