LEXINGTON, Ky. – The Kentucky Department of Agriculture on Wednesday welcomed Lucky’s Market as a new Kentucky Proud retailer in Lexington’s burgeoning local food scene.


“Lucky’s Market has created a new venue for Lexington-area shoppers to buy Kentucky Proud products,” Commissioner of Agriculture Ryan Quarles said. “Lucky’s management has worked closely with the Department’s marketing specialists to locate retail-ready Kentucky Proud products. Their decision to open a new store shows the strength and the growth potential of the organic and local food industry in Kentucky.”


Lucky’s representatives and local officials celebrated a “bacon-cutting” ceremony to officially open the store Wednesday at the 1030 South Broadway site.


“Lucky’s Market specializes in bringing people local, fresh, seasonal foods and specialty items all at affordable prices,” said Bo Sharon, who founded Lucky’s Market with his wife, Trish. “We are thrilled to open our new Lucky’s Market in Lexington and help make Kentucky Proud, natural, organic, and specialty foods more readily available to people in the area. We believe Lucky’s Market will be the new one-stop shop for people who love good food at amazing prices.”


Lucky’s has five sections of the store dedicated to Kentucky Proud. The store is working with Kentucky-based distributors Fishmarket Seafood of Louisville and Town and Country Specialty Foods of Bardstown to obtain Kentucky Proud products.


Based in Niwot, Colorado, Lucky’s Market now has 16 locations in 11 states, including one in Louisville.
