Market on Main dedication

The Imogene Stout Market on Main was formally dedicated this morning during a ceremony at the facility, which was paid for through grant funds from the State of Kentucky and a local tourism tax.

The facility will be home to the seasonal farmers market as well as a venue for other community activities.

The facility is named for the late Mrs. Stout, who lived across the street for many years and was a community volunteer and civic leader. Her son, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Alan Stout, had previously owned the empty lot where market was developed. For a long time, he had allowed local farmers to sell their produce there.
