Preservation Station Market and Event Center is hosting a Fall Market Day on Saturday, with more than 100 vendors and a restaurant buffet at 9661 State Route 56.
Located just 12 miles west of Owensboro, Preservation Station is located in a 40,000-square foot former elementary school where classrooms have been turned into boutiques and antique stores. The former school cafeteria has been converted to a 100-seat restaurant and the gym is now used as a special event venue for Market Days and weddings.
This Saturday, customers can shop from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. for antique, unique, boutique, and handcrafted items. There will be plenty of fall décor, fall clothing, and an additional 20% off all new farmhouse dining sets.
“We have something for everyone,” owner Jennifer Higdon said. “From Amish jams and jellies to kids clothes to antiques to jewelry, spa items, man cave signs, T-shirts, brand new farmhouse furniture, Hawaiian shirts, pet items, antique and vintage items and furniture, posters, records, garden items, collectible knives, porch décor, pyrex, bath and body and so much more.”
Shoppers can eat from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the restaurant, which will provide a large buffet. The menu will include hand-breaded chicken tenders and catfish, homemade meatloaf, KY Legend ham, baked beans, creamy mashed potatoes, southern green beans, sweet corn, broccoli, fried apples, a garden salad bar, banana pudding, pasta salad, potato salad, cole slaw, watermelon, and peach cobbler and bread pudding.
“We are ready for a crowd,” Kitchen Manager Angela Fields said. “We have been cooking for days. We have a great staff who works as fast as they can, and we can usually get people in and out fast, so we don’t have to be on a wait. Bring all your friends, so we don’t have any food leftover.”
Deborah Coomes, co-owner of Preservation Station, added “Shoppers come from 2-3 hours away all day long, so if you haven’t been out to see us, we would love to welcome you to our place.”
