LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Roadside farm markets are still open for business in Kentucky, but organizers are already looking ahead to next year.

Kentucky Farm Bureau says enrollment is now open for the 2015 Certified Roadside Farm Market program.

The initiative started in 1996 as a way to help farmers market their fruits and vegetables directly from roadside markets to consumers across the state.

Since then, membership has expanded to include greenhouses, landscape nurseries, Christmas tree farms, vineyards and meat and cheese farm markets. Markets certified through the program are identified by the cornucopia logo.

Farm Bureau says all enrollment applications must be postmarked by Dec. 31 to guarantee placement in the annual membership directory.
