FRANKFORT – Kentucky Proud, the state’s official agricultural marketing program, invites all Kentuckians to meet “where the best of Kentucky comes together” at Kentucky’s farmers’ markets.

“Summertime in Kentucky means farmers’ markets are in full swing across the state,” said Kentucky Commissioner of Agriculture Ryan Quarles. “Consumers want the freshest and healthiest foods available and that’s exactly what you can find at any of 3,000 vendors in the 170 farmers’ markets throughout 112 Kentucky counties. Farmer’s markets truly are ‘where the best of Kentucky comes together.’”
