FLORENCE, KY (FOX19) -
Construction on a new

do," explained Berberich.

like about Findlay Market is the atmosphere, and so that is what I hope to
capture here. Not to copy, but to capture that environment, but more importantly
to support Kentucky agriculture," said Berberich.
The Friendly Market will be an outdoor farmer's pavilion, as well as a store consisting of 85% local and regional Kentucky products.
"We're going to have meats, breads made from Kentucky flour. We will have ice cream that's being made from a
family in Bowling Green, vegetables, Taste of Belgium..." added Berberich.
says his goal is to keep the tradition of farming alive in his home state.
parents had a farm. I owned a farm. Hopefully it will show the young folks they
can participate in agriculture and still have a nice living," said Berberich.
He says the farmers pavilion part of the Friendly Market will be open in 2 to 3
weeks and the store will be open by end of May.
