LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The Buy Local Fair, a community favorite, returned to the Water Tower Park on Saturday, after COVID-19 canceled last year’s festivities.
The event brought some of the Louisville area’s unique businesses to show off their goods and connect with customers.
It featured a variety of offerings including, businesses, artists, community organizations and farmers. There was even a grownups area sponsored by Cox’s Spirit Shoppe.
"Some of our businesses are not brick and mortar so this is the one opportunity a year, or one of the few opportunities they have a year to actually meet their customers and show off what they have to sell. And I think for Louisville in general it’s great for the community to see us all in one place,”
Ashley Parker, board chair with the Louisville Independent Business Alliance, said.
The Louisville Independent Business Alliance has 800 members.
Organizers said last year they were a lifeline for businesses navigating COVID-19 and this year, they were happy to be back at the fair.
