Workers in downtown Louisville — especially around the hospitals — have a convenient option this season for eating local.

Whether you’re on a lunch break or picking up some groceries, the Gray Street Farmers Market is just east of the Norton Healthcare Pavilion in the 400 block of East Gray Street, between South Preston and South Jackson streets.
The Gray Street Farmers Market began in 2009 as an outreach program of the University of Louisville School of Public Health and Information Sciences and has grown substantially.
The vendor list is extensive. Each week you will find local farm products including fruits, vegetables, breads, honey, canned goods, meats, lunch items, crafts and more. Debit cards, credit cards and Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits are accepted.
The Gray Street Farmers Market will be open from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. every Thursday through Oct. 31, 2019.
The Louisville Farmers Market Association has a list of other farmers markets in the area on the city’s web site.
