For the second year in a row, the Kentucky Department of Agriculture (KDA) is conducting the social media contest to commemorate Farmers’ Markets Week Aug. 4-10 and raise awareness of the fresh local foods available at Kentucky farmers’ markets.

To be eligible for the contest, you must capture photos of the people, enjoyment, beauty, and culture of the Fort Thomas Farmers' Market.

Your account must be public in order to be reviewed. Each post should include a single photo, and you must tag the Kentucky Proud Instagram account — @kentuckyproud. Include #KyProudFarmersMarkets in your caption. Those who enter must be Kentucky residents 18 or over. Photos must be posted from Aug. 1-31 to be eligible.

The Fort Thomas Farmers' Market is located at 950 Cochran Avenue (Tower Park by the tennis courts), and takes place on Wednesdays from 3:00 — 7:00 p.m. (June 5 ‚ September 25) and 3:00 — 6:00 p.m. during October.

“We like to call our farmers’ markets ‘The Freshest Party in Town,’” Commissioner Quarles said. “A farmers’ market is a great place to buy farm-fresh foods produced by your friends and neighbors just down the road. But they’re more than that – they are experiences where you may find live entertainment, cooking demonstrations, activities for kids, and many other attractions. I look forward to seeing your photos of Kentucky’s vibrant, colorful farmers’ markets.”

Winners will be selected at random. The KDA will award multiple gift baskets that each contain Kentucky Proud products valued at more than $100. For full contest rules, go to
