Farmers Market offers greater access to the community

Customers of the Gray Street Farmers Market don’t need cash on hand to purchase healthy home-grown food. A new EBT/Debit machine allows the market to accept food stamps and process debit cards. The machine was purchased with a grant from the Kentucky Farmers Market Association. This addition expands access to area residents with lower incomes and stimulates market success by making it easier for customers to make purchases. Gray Street is one of four markets dedicated to increasing availability of fresh foods to generally underserved areas in what are known as ‘food deserts.’

Local media highlighted this new initiative:
