It just doesn't get any better than that! Unless you add the wonderful squash, peppers, taters and cucumbers too! Heck, throw in some onions, garlic and even some broccoli! Of course you can't forget the wonderful blackberries, raspberries and rhubarb!
The Bluegrass Farmers' Market is full of the Kentucky summer bounty!
And don't let anyone kid you, we grow it all ourselves! No reselling allowed at our market so you know you're getting nothing but homegrown goodness from our farmers. Remember that we know what we grow and it isn't your average grocery store varieties. Look for heirloom tomatoes such as German Stripey. Or fabulous squash such as Magda, Cousa or Patty Pan. Peppers...hot and mild! Potatoes, round, long, red, white and even fingerling! Of course, everyone is talking corn right now and we've got a crowd favorite, Silver Queen along with Ambrosia and bi-color! What about some wonderful green beans...Romas, Tenderettes, Pole, Kentucky Wonders and a few heirloom varieties too!
Yup, summer crops are in full swing at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market!
But, that's not all that you'll find. We have farm fresh eggs, Amish cheese, ASH Free beef, honey, herb seasoning, jams, jellies and fruit butters, the very best baked goods and even homemade soaps! Now, granted, our farmers didn't “grow” these but they darn sure either raised or made them!
Who could forget the beautiful cut flowers and gorgeous baskets loaded with colorful flowers! Or maybe even a fragrant herb plant...we've got those too!
As you can tell, the members of the Bluegrass Farmers' Market take great pride in what they do. That's why one of the stipulations to becoming a member is that each individual farmer is certified Kentucky Proud! We don't just register the whole market...we make sure each of our farmers really grow or produce what they take pride in offering to the market!
We are Lexington's only 100% homegrown or produced farmers market!!!
