As with many small Appalachian communities, Corbin’s downtown struggled for many years. Community members recently participated in the pilot round of the federal Local Foods, Local Places program, which helps people create walkable, healthy, economically vibrant neighborhoods through the development of local food systems. Corbin opened a new farmers market downtown, which attracted people and new businesses. According to Corbin’s main street manager, the market helped drive the vacancy rate from over 40 percent down to less than 5 percent.
