When it comes to making things machines have triumphed over man, or have they? This week, on Kentucky’s Backroads, we travel to Bath County to visit the Kentucky Market Pavilion where products hand made by artists, craftsmen and farmers are on display.
The non-profit marketing effort began a year ago as an attempt to help the local artist, crafter and farmer and carry on hand made traditions. The pavilion includes everything from free range meat to wax scented teddy bears to doggie treats.
We also visit J.D. Combs’ workshop where he turns wood into pens, bowls and miniature birdhouses. Combs says the money he makes from the sale of those items at the KMP allow him to pay for his hobby.
The market store is open Tuesday-Friday 10-5 and Saturday 11-4, closed Sunday and Monday.
