Farmers Market offers greater access to the community


    LOUISVILLE, Ky. 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.
