“One of the most positive things we’ve seen happen over the past two years is increased consumer demand for locally grown food, and with that demand, our Kentucky Farm Certified Farmer’s Market (CFM) program Bureau (KFB) continues to grow, too,” said KFB Chairman Mark Haney. “We look forward to another successful season providing our customers with some of the finest farm-fresh produce from some of the best producers in this state.”

Markets certified under this program are identified by the KFB Certified Farm Market logo and listed in our online directory. The program also provides group advertising, promotional items, educational tour opportunities and other marketing benefits with the goal of increasing net farm income in member markets.

The KFB Certified Farm Market Rack Card is available at Kentucky Welcome Centers, State Resort Parks, local Chambers of Commerce/Tourism Centers, and County Farm Bureau offices.
