Kentucky has about 2,700 farm vendors and markets across the state, including 160 Kentucky Proud farmers markets, according to the Kentucky Department of Agriculture.
One of those is Fannin’s Vegetable Farm near West Liberty in Morgan County, served by Licking Valley RECC. Owner Sarah Fannin, a Morgan County Cooperative Extension agriculture agent, says the market was established in 1995.
“We are open from April until October and sell seasonal selections of flowers, vegetable transplants and lots of locally grown vegetables and fruits. Find sweet corn, tomatoes, peppers, heirloom green beans and apples now. By mid-month, our farm-grown mums are beginning to bloom and you can buy a quart of world-famous Morgan County sorghum. In the fall we have hundreds of pumpkins and gourds for your autumn decor,” says Fannin.
Starting last year, Blaze BBQ & Wings food truck, owned by Larry and Julie Lewis, is at Fannin’s most Saturdays. “We offer signature smoked wings, barbecue brisket and pulled pork. One of our biggest sellers is Julie’s grandmother’s Nanny Mae’s Baked Beans,” says Larry.
Fannin’s is at 2140 Highway 460 W., West Liberty, and is open Monday–Saturday, 9 a.m.–5:30 p.m. For more information, go to Facebook: Fannin’s Vegetable Farm.
