As we approach the 4th of July holiday weekend, I can't think of a better way to celebrate our Independence Day than to shop at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market. Where would our great nation be without farmers who provide the food that we eat! It's a great day to come support the men and women who work endlessly in our soil to make sure that we have the freshest and the best available for our families.
Our farmers will be celebrating the 4th by bringing their bounties to the market this Saturday so that you can enjoy them too! Look for tomatoes, potatoes, cucumbers, onions, garlic, green beans, zucchini, beets, squash, okra, turnips, greens, carrots, cabbage and so much more. And, don't think just plain old taters and squash! Our farmers work hard to provide you with special varieties such as Cousa, Zephyr and Patty Pan squash and Kennebec, Wisconsin Superior, Red Norland and Yukon Gold potatoes to name a few. Don't forget the wonderful ASH free beef , honey and the farm fresh eggs along with the Amish cheese!
If you're craving something sweet think about the fresh blueberries or the wonderful jams and jellies. We'll have many varieties available such as grape, blueberry, blue ribbon winning strawberry, mixed berry, strawberry and rhubarb, blackberry, spice tomato jams and even apple butter and some sugar free ones too! Did I mention sweet? How about sweet and good for you at the same time, like pumpkin or zucchini bread, chocolate breads, jam cakes, cookies and even sugar free zucchini bread!
You can also decorate your 4th of July table with a bouquet of beautiful fresh cut lisianthus, zinnias, snapdragons or even the all American favorite, sunflowers! If you'd like something a bit more long lasting, how about a hanging basket full of flowers or herbs, potted lilies or tropicals like a banana tree.
And, to help you with those holiday bbq plans, why not try some hand blended herb seasoning! Or maybe some fresh cut herbs like basil or mint. Then finish the day off with a nice hot bath using some of the wonderful homemade soaps available. These are you average store bought soaps either! Look for soaps made with goat's milk, honey, shea butter and pure glycerin!
Bet this all sounds wonderful but we're not finished yet! Some of our farmers are having a holiday SALE! Floral hanging baskets are 2 for $10! Select one ounce herb seasoning is 2 for $5! And, the ground beef and cube steaks are on sale too! Ya can't get better than that...a farmers market that is having a sale !
We hope to see you this Saturday at the BLUEGRASS FARMERS' MARKET! We'll be there from 9 until 2!
