the Beyond Grits Guide to

Farmers' Markets

Farm Fresh & Local


Lexington is home to several local farmers markets that offer impressive spreads of homegrown goodness. Browse seasonal selections of farm-fresh eggs, flowers, herbs, vegetables, pasture-raised meats, cheese, local honey and more exceptional ingredients for your own culinary creations. Or grab a unique bite to eat from one of the many local vendors. 

The Farmers Market is a Kentucky Proud program. Kentucky Proud programs include foods, crafts, and many other products with roots in Kentucky soil. These foods are raised, grown, or processed in Kentucky by Kentuckians. When you buy a product with the Kentucky Proud label you are:

  • Buying the freshest, most nutritious food possible.
  • Keeping your dollars close to home.
  • Helping a Kentucky farm family earn a living.
  • Reducing the miles that the food has to travel from the farm to your plate.
