Local First Lexington
Public & Societal Benefit
Local First Lexington was formed in 2008 as an alliance of locally owned, independently operated Lexington businesses. Our goal is to help keep Lexington a unique, interesting, and economically stable place to live and work. We feel that by encouraging Lexington citizens to think “Local First”, our home-grown businesses and nonprofit organizations, which contribute so much to our local culture and economy, will continue to grow and prosper — and so will Lexington. Primary objectives: 1) To increase public awareness of greater Lexington, KY, and all local independent businesses in the greater Bluegrass area. 2) To advocate the common concerns of local businesses and nonprofit organizations in public forums and spaces. 3) To create opportunities for members to share and exchange advice, methods, best practices, and professional contacts.
