Farmer’s Market on Vine St., 1990

Posted on June 23, 2018 | in Uncategorized | by

J.T. Kriegel of Georgetown bagged new potatoes as customers began arriving at Lexington’s Farmer’s Market downtown on Vine Street on Saturday morning August 25, 1990. The market began in the early 1970’s, with the first location on the present Civic Center site in 1973. They then moved to a vacant lot on West Main Street across from Newtown Pike in 1974. The Broadway and Maxwell site was used in 1979 and in June 1980 they opened on the north side of Vine Street between Vine and Upper Streets, where it remained until moving to their current location in Cheapside Park in 2009, with the addition of the 5/3 Bank Pavilion in 2010.
