Open Air Market
The Beechmont Open Air Market is one of our most beloved neighborhood amenities. The market is open Saturdays, 8 a.m. - noon, from June-September.
Vendors sell fresh produce, local meat, and artisan crafts and goods. Local musicians provide entertainment, and Supreme Peace Yoga offers a community class for a $5 suggested donation. (Please note: yoga classes start at 9:30 a.m., and are weather-dependent.)
The market is located at the corner of Southern Parkway and Wellington Ave., in the parking lot of the Beechmont Baptist Church.
Vendors are expected to be familiar with and comply with Kentucky Proud guidelines (grown in Kentucky or within 50 miles of state border) and Kentucky Department of Agriculture rules and regulations pertaining to food handling and processing.
Produce sold should be grown by the vendor and follow Kentucky Proud guidelines.
The sale of produce grown by someone other than the seller requires pre-approval. Any resold produce must meet Kentucky Proud guidelines; include signage to indicate the actual grower; and is limited to 30% of vendor’s total product offering. Exceptions to this rule might be considered to provide products we have previously been unable to offer such as organics, cheese, meat, and grains.
Home-produced products should be labeled properly: Labels should state: name & address of producer; product ingredients; and date produced.
The fee to set up is $75 for the season.
For artisans and crafters:
Artisan products should be handmade in Kentucky. No flea market or yard sale items will be permitted. The fee to set up is $40 for the season.
For all vendors:
Registration is currently closed for the 2019 season. For those wishing to become vendors during an upcoming season, an orientation training is held in April. All producers and artisans are asked to attend. Please watch the Beechmont Open Air Market Facebook page for announcements about registration and training for the 2020 season.
