Today, the Farmers Market on the Square is truly On your way to everywhere.

Fred Capps Golf Tournament at the Pines, you having a lawn picnic at the LWC Men's Soccer vs. Bryan match Walter Reuling at Lindsey Wilson or are tailgating at the Lindsey Football vs. Reinhardt game at Blue Raider Stadium or going to Homecoming or the All Night Singing at Red Lick, or you're out with a bow and arrow to harvest a deer or turkey this morning, or you're a dedicated Yard Sale shopper, many if not most of the trips bring you through Downtown Columbia and The Farmers Market on the Square. Stop in for a quick purchase of deliciousness! And, if you are hear at 10amCT, you'll get to hear one of South Central Kentucky's most wonderful entertainer's, Dick Scholl.
