Knott County Farmer’s Market Expansion

Definitely a plus for older or disabled people, the Hindman Settlement School received $5,445 to expand the Knott County Farmer’s Market.The funds are part of a statewide push to diversify agriculture and develop rural communities. The market expansion in Hindman is important to officials who see it as a primary source of fresh, local food.“We have a Wal-Mart but that’s all the way in Hazard about 25 minutes away. We’ve got an IGA down the road, but they don’t have everything,” says Kelsey Cloonan. “It’s not accessible around here. Especially for older folks or disabled folks who can’t get out and about.”
