Nona’s Downtown Market Offers Variety of Local Products

OWENSBORO, Ky. (5/1/14) — Goat Ridge Soaps, custom pottery pieces produced by local sculptor Dave Walker, fresh vegetables and fruits provided by local growers when possible, and any number of 'Kentucky Proud' items are just a few things available at Nona’s Downtown Market.

The new store, which opened April 5 at its location on Second Street in downtown Owensboro, is the brainchild of Maria Kelley. She told SurfKY News operating such a business has been a dream of hers for quite some time.

“I love ‘local,’ and I’ve always thought it would be nice to have a place where things from around here are available,” she said.

In developing her store plan, Kelley sought out some and received requests from others in and around the Daviess County area to have their products included. She said many of the items were a good fit right away, and hopes others will be things she can add later.

The theme of Nona’s, grandmothers, is depicted in photo images screen printed onto reusable bags for sale at the store. Kelley said she invited people to submit photos of their grandmothers to be included on the bag, and plans to do a new bag with a new set of photos in the near future.

Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner James Comer and other state and local officials gathered Saturday for a ribbon cutting ceremony at the market because of its affiliation with the Kentucky Proud program.
