Our Story

Come on in! Wild Fig Books & Coffee is your very own local/global, writer-owned, black-owned, counter-gentrification bookstore, nestled in the heart of Lexington, Kentucky's North Limestone district. Our shop is named in honor of the writer Gayl Jones, who has made the NOLI her home for more than 40 years.  

The Wild Fig offers boutique treats, a barista who means business, and a curated catalog of fresh books for adults and kids. Our books aren't just our inventory, they are our recommendations! Each selection was handpicked with you in mind. So if you're looking for lunch, a real good read, or a little conversationwe got you. Not in town? Search our inventory for your favorite genre, title, or author and order the world. We'll send it to you in the post with some wild love tucked inside. Think of us as your corner country store, without the dead animals on the walls.

The proprietors,

Ron Davis (upfromsumdirt) & Crystal Wilkinson
