Garnett Edwards of Waco, Ky., right, sold produce at Lexington’s Farmers Market, which was on West Main Street across from Newtown Pike in May 1977. The market began in 1973 on the current site of the Civic Center. It then moved to this vacant lot on West Main Street in 1974. The Broadway and Maxwell Street site was used in 1979, and in June 1980, it moved to the north side of Vine Street between Vine and Upper streets, where it remained until moving to its current Saturday site in Cheapside Park in 2009. The Fifth Third Bank Pavilion was built in 2010. Photo by Ron Garrison | Staff
