Today the boys and I visited The Friendly Market in Boone County for the first time. This market opened in 2013, and has some great local vendors and products. The Friendly Market is a smaller market than Findlay Market, but I liked the intimate vibe, and loved the fact that the business owners themselves were behind the counters. I really enjoyed my time spent this afternoon talking to the different vendors about their wares. I came home with some amazing ingredients for dinner and some of our favorite brews. Friendly Market boasts produce, spices, high quality meats, homemade ice cream, a fantastic liquor store, a plethora of olive oils,a great selection of seafood, fresh baked bread, jams made in Kentucky, homemade soaps and more. You can get a glimpse of the goodness in the pictures below. I highly suggest you hit the Friendly Market for a shopping trip soon!
