Merry on Main

By Courtney Desrochers


Nestled along the bustling streets of Versailles, you’ll find many of Woodford County’s most charming operations right on Main Street.  

Start by having freshly brewed coffee or a specialty beverage at the Amsden Coffee Club, located inside the 1890’s-constructed bank building. While waiting on your order, you can browse Gathered Mercantile, a darling shop where you’ll find an eclectic variety of vintage goods, home décor and jewelry from over twenty local makers. You can even create your own fresh floral arrangement.  

Once you’ve built up an appetite, make your way down to Spark Community Café for a fresh farm-to-table meal with a mission: to always pay it forward. Spark has helped provide over 7,500 meals to the food insecure and have donated over $20,000 to the Central Kentucky farm economy. Make sure to try the pimento cheese and chicken salad, followed by a freshly baked cookie. 

You can’t forget to stop in Bluegrass Traditions, the perfect place to pick up a unique keepsake or take home from your travels. You can also find the official Visit Horse Country merchandise here. 

Conclude your day with a tasty treat from Cafe Lilu, an extension of Sweet Lilu’s Catering & Bakery, or a scoop of delicious gelato from Spotz next door, as you reflect on your day.

All of these and more, you can check out in further detail here:
