The 5,000 square foot store in endorsed by The Kentucky Department of Agriculture and is a venture spearheaded by Kentucky Proud member Elk Creek Vineyards.

Registered Kentucky Proud and Kentucky Crafted members are invited to participate in selling products at Kentucky Proud Market on a wholesale consignment basis. Participants will establish an account that outlines the amount of product shipped to the store initially and the ideal flow of product over time. We will tailor your consignment agreement to the size of your business. We are committed to offering product from both large and small companies, and require that all participants be registered members of Kentucky Proud or Kentucky Crafted.
