Everyone is invited to bring the kids and come out and get acquainted with the Market.

The Market has multiple locations this year for more convenient shopping!

Growers will be open as long as produce is available, and are generally sold out by noon.

All growers at the Market are registered with the Kentucky Department of Agriculture and sell Kentucky Proud products. Each producer is trained in Good Agricultural Practices, and is GAP Certified. Their farms have been inspected, and they are producing their vegetables as naturally as possible. Both Senior and WIC Vouchers will be accepted at the Grayson County Farmer’s Market.
