Before I tell you what will be available at the market today I just have to let you know how much fun everyone at at Saturday's Customer Appreciation Day! Our thanks to “GrillMan Drew” of Caros restaurant for showing us yet another way to cook up the market bounty. Folks enjoyed watching and then sampling his veggie saute' using market corn, tomatoes, squash, onions, peppers and anything else that he could find to chop and put in his skillet! Our customers also enjoyed the possibility of winning Market $$$ as they stuck their hand into the jug and hopefully pulled out a winner! And, our thanks to the farmers who had individual drawings at their booths. Folks won beeswax candles, flowers, hanging baskets, herb seasoning gift baskets and veggies galore!
Now, for what will be available at the market today. Please remember that everything that you find is homegrown by our farmers and each and every one of them are certified Kentucky Proud, something that most markets can't say! We are Lexington's only 100% homegrown/produced market!
Cousa, Magda, Patty Pan and Yellow squash
Pepper, hot and mild
Fresh cut herbs
Jams and jellies
and maybe even some freshly harvested Corn!
Our farmers will be set up at 3450 Richmond Rd. in the tree lined parking lot of Pedal the Planet and Fast Signs, right next to the Glenn Auto Mall from 3 until 6:30 today. And, don't forget that you can also find farmers each Thursday from 4 until 6 at the Fayette County Health Department parking lot on Newtown Pike!
Once again, we thank you for your support of local farmers who really do grow for you!
