Thank you Edible Louisville for our Local Hero Award for Best Louisville Farmers Market! How do you define a “local hero”? Edible Louisville defines it as someone whose business offers high-quality local products and maintains high standards in social and environmental practices, food sourcing, regional economic impact and commitment to promoting a sustainable food system. Readers nominated two local heroes in each of seven categories: one from the Bluegrass region and one from Louisville (Jefferson County). People from all over the state responded with enthusiasm! We are uber grateful. Thank you Edible Louisville! Check it out here:
