Kentucky Farm Bureau launched the Certified Farm Market program in 1996 to help farmers market their fruits and vegetables directly to consumers across the Commonwealth. The program is a voluntary program that supports farm market operations that are committed to providing customers with locally grown, quality products, and service. Participating markets adhere to program requirements set forth by Kentucky Farm Bureau and have developed a reputation for meeting the highest standards of quality, freshness, and market appeal.
