Kentucky Main Street Farmer’s Market
In the last 5 years markets have brought farmers and communities
together in Main Street communities. Several of these such as
Murray have had a downtown market for many years, but for others
this is a recent event. It is a great way to support our local small
business farmers and get people into our downtowns. This week we
are featuring some of the markets across the state.
Many items and farms at the market are certified by
our partner, the Department of Agriculture and are
labeled Kentucky Proud .
When you buy Kentucky Proud, you buy local food
that you can serve to your family with confidence.
You can find recipes, and products on their web-site
and sometimes right at the market!
A variety of items can be found at each of the markets,
to the right is a sampling from Covington.
Cynthiana is one of several communities
who have their market in several locations
to serve the community.
You can get a hot breakfast with local
products at Danville’s market and buy
something to cook or serve in when
you get home!
