“One of the most positive things we’ve seen happen over the past couple of years is increased consumer demand for locally grown food, and with that demand, our Kentucky Farm Bureau Certified Farmer’s Market Program (KFB ) continues to grow, as well,” 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 finest producers in this state.”
