The Letcher County Farmers’ Market, fiscally sponsored by the City of Whitesburg, was developed to provide residents with fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables. We are committed to providing a platform for local growers, artisans, musicians, and crafters to make money in agriculture and the arts.
We are also committed to making the market accessible to all. We now accept alternative payment methods including: WIC, SNAP, and Senior Vouchers.
The Kids Kafé at the Letcher County Farmers Market is a USDA Summer Feeding Site sponsored by the Letcher County Public Schools. At the food booth, we serve fresh meals sourced with local products from many of the market's growers. Some of the items served include blueberry smoothies, breakfast wraps, and fajitas. All kids ages 18 and under eat free, and items are sold at low cost to anyone 19 and up.
The FARMACY Program, introduced and sponsored by Mountain Comprehensive Health Corporation (MCHC) in 2015, is meant to provide healthy foods to patients with dietary restrictions. With support from Passport Health Plan and WellCare, MCHC is now writing prescriptions for fruits and vegetables to patients to be redeemed at the Letcher County Farmers Market in Whitesburg!
