Boy oh boy, have our farmers been busy! You're sure to love what they'll be bringing to the market this Saturday so plan on spending some time with us so you can make sure you don't miss out on anything!
The big news...blackberries are in! So are the wonderful freshly dug new potatoes and fingerlings. Heck, you might even find some of the seasons first cucumbers too. More spring offerings still available will be sugar snap peas, snow peas, rhubarb, lettuce and mixed greens, turnips, green onions and probably the very last of the asparagus. Our farmers don't harvest until just the right time so with a little luck you'll be able to find arugula and kale this week too. And don't forget the fresh cut basil and cilantro!
What do farmers do when it's raining and they can't work in the fields? They go indoors and bake, blend and create! And, you'll be happy to know that many of them will be bringing their creations to the market this week. Like the spiced tomato jam, hot pepper jam, fruit jams and jellies, sourdough wheat and other breads, jam cake, herb seasoning blends, dried tomatoes and even Amish cheese! The creativity doesn't stop there. Look for beeswax candles and lip balm, homemade soaps, recycled material tote bags, lavender sachet and fresh lavender bundles! You'll even be able to watch while one of our farmers spins her llama, sheep and angora goat wool! With a little help from the bees and hens you'll also find farm fresh eggs and honey.
Want some beautiful color and scent in your home or yard? We'll have fresh cut flowers, hanging floral baskets and planters, ornamental grasses, bedding plants, tropicals, herb and even a few vegetable plants too. And, a must have for any cook...a hanging herb garden! Don't forget the llama poo to keep those plants beautiful!
It's gonna be a great Saturday at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market, so come join us from 9am until 2pm. We're located in the beautiful tree lined parking lot of Fast Signs and Pedal the Planet at 3450 Richmond Rd. That's right next door to the Glenn Auto Mall.
