Midweek at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market

Once again I have to tell you that I love farmers! My favorite green bean is a Roma but they were always a pain because you had to “string” them. Well, not anymore...I was introduced to a stringless Roma last Saturday! They are wonderful, great Roma bean taste and no strings to fool with. Life doesn't get much better than that.


Well, except for the potatoes, tomatoes, green peppers, sweet potatoes, cucumbers, winter squash, zucchini, okra, eggplant, hot peppers, half runner beans, raspberries, watermelon and apples available on Tuesday and Thursday at the market! Heck, you'll even find jams and jellies and fresh cut flowers!


I'll say it again...it doesn't get much better than that! Hope to see you all at one of our markets.


Stay tuned for the Saturday offerings!

Bluegrass Farmers' Market Happenings!

Saturday is going to be a big day in Lexington! The University of Kentucky gets to show how good they are against the University of Louisville...go cats! Of course that means that the downtown traffic will be very busy so why not take the opportunity to take the short drive out Richmond Rd. to the Bluegrass Farmers' Market! I can promise that the traffic will be much better and we always have plenty of free and convenient parking.


Now on to the market...


I am an avid recipe collector but I also promise that I do try them! I was so excited to learn that we would have local apples available at the market this week because it meant I could enjoy on of my very most favorite treats..a grilled apple'n cheese sandwich! I know, it sounds odd but believe me it's wonderful and so easy to make. It would be a great after school snack for the kids but I'm a big girl and I love them too!


Grilled Apple'n Cheese Sandwich


Lightly toast your bread...choice is yours but I have to admit that I prefer whole wheat.

Place a few slices of Jack cheese (Swiss works great too) on one side of toasted bread.

Then cover with thinly sliced apples...I leave the skin on them!

Sprinkle with just a bit of cinnamon and sugar.

Cover with the remaining slice of toasted bread.

Melt some butter in a skillet and “grill” your sandwich until the cheese is melted and the toast is golden brown!


Grab a napkin and enjoy!


The really great part is we'll have the locally grown apples and Casey County Amish cheese available at the market this week...all you need is the bread!


Another new item making its first appearance at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market this week is Casey County sorghum! I'm telling you I feel like I have died and gone to heaven! I can smell and taste my biscuits slathered with warm sorghum and butter already! It's hard to decide which I love more, honey or sorghum, on my biscuits. The good thing...we'll have plenty of both available this Saturday!


Here are more goodies that you'll find this week at the market...

tomatoes

potatoes

kale

squash

green beans

peppers

raspberries

watermelon

jams and jellies

farm fresh eggs

ASH free beef

beer cheese

herb seasoning

honey

homemade soap

fresh cut flowers

herb plants

hanging baskets

mums


And, so much more including a really neat item that I just had to buy for my hubby...an Amish made walking stick! You couldn't beat the $5 price tag!!!

This week at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market!

I have to admit that there was a wee bit of a nip in the air this morning. Fall can't be far away and that means mums are in!!! Yes, we have mums at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market! And, other fall goodies like pumpkins and homemade potpourri!


And, you'll be happy to know that we still have plenty of summer favorites like tomatoes, hot and sweet peppers, green beans, potatoes, watermelons, raspberries, okra, eggplant, herbs, rhubarb, kale and so much more.


Don't forget the wonderful homemade jams and jellies. Or the beautiful fresh cut flowers, dried flowers, herbs and potted plants. How about the homemade soaps. Or even some herb seasoning...it's almost chili time! Farm fresh eggs and ASH free beef and Amish cheese are great additions to our market too! Need a tailgating treat? Try some homemade beer cheese. Want to sweeten up your breakfast biscuit? How about some Kentucky State Fair blue ribbon winning honey!


Good news...we even have a farmer who planted corn late in the season so look forward to farm fresh corn in the coming weeks! We'll keep you updated on when to expect an unexpected locally grown treat!


We hope to see you at one of our market days. We'll be bringing our farms best to you with smiles on our faces!

Bluegrass Farmers' Market Happenings!

September is one of my favorite months of the year. Most of the warm summer crops are still available at the farmers market and some of the cooler fall crops are starting to make an appearance. It just doesn't get any better than that!


We can all still enjoy ripe tomatoes, freshly picked corn, wonderful green beans, tantalizing hot and sweet peppers, newly harvested potatoes, fresh cut rhubarb and sweet treats like watermelons, cantaloupes and raspberries!


And, we're just starting to see some of the cooler weather crops like kale, onions, garlic and shallots!


~*~ All 100% homegrown on our farms! ~*~


Don't forget about the beautiful and colorful flowers that will bring a smile to anyones face! Or, the herb seasoning that can make a chef out of anyone! How about some of those wonderful jams and jellies! And, the great beer cheese! Tender and flavorful ASH Free beef! Farm fresh eggs and Amish cheese that can't be beat! Home baked goods that will make you drool! Handmade soaps are a luxury only they are not luxury priced!


~*~ All 100% raised, grown or produced by our farmers! ~*~


September also has a day that we, as Americans, need to remember. September 11th! Please take a moment out of your busy schedule to remember those that lost their lives on 9/11 and to thank our service men and women for continuing to keep us safe.

Happy Labor Day!

It might be a holiday but our farmers are busy working today so that they can bring the freshest and the best to the Tuesday market. Hopefully they will take some time off today and enjoy a traditional Labor Day cookout with their family and friends. I know we will be grilling some wonderful veggies that I bought on Saturday to go along with the great steaks that I also purchased. I love the way our farmers support each other!


This week you'll be able to find juicy tomatoes...even heirloom ones! There will be heirloom peppers too! In fact, there will be peppers in all sizes and shapes, hot or sweet, big and little! The potato varieties are numerous with “spuds” that make wonderful salads, some that are great for baking, others that are wonderful boiled and mashed. Don't forget that taters are great on the grill too! There's still plenty of raspberries, rhubarb and watermelons available. Oh, and don't forget the beautiful green beans...they went fast on Saturday! So did the colorful flowers and fresh cut herbs. I think they probably will end up as centerpieces on more than one picnic table today! And, how could I forget the wonderful jams, jellies and butters!!! Talk about big flavor in a jar! If your sweet tooth gets the best of you, try a delicious jam cake.


Yup, homegrown goodness galore at our Tuesday and Thursday market! I'll be updating again on Thursday so you all will know what we'll have at our bigger Saturday market, so stay tuned!

This Week At The Bluegrass Farmers' Market!

The kids are back in school, the weather folks keep telling us that the meteorological fall season has started, the pools have closed, windows are being opened and the AC is being turned off. What does that mean for the folks at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market?


It means we are busier than ever!!!


There's still plenty of the warm weather crops to tend to and some of the fall crops have been planted but there's still more to go in the ground. The only time a farmer gets to stop is when we have snow covered grounds and even then they are ordering seeds for the following year. Thank heavens the snow is a long way off and we still get to do what we love...get our hands dirty!


This week you'll be able to find tomatoes of all types including heirlooms, sweet and hot peppers, a huge variety of potatoes, kale, squash, cucumbers, carrots, onions, okra, green beans, fresh cut herbs, rhubarb, raspberries, watermelons and maybe even some corn!


If that's not enough to tempt you to visit us, how about wonderful jams and jellies, home baked goods, award winning honey, herb seasoning, Amish cheese, ASH Free beef and farm fresh eggs! And, if you missed out on a sample of the wonderful beer cheese...it's back this week! Don't forget the smell good things like fresh cut flowers and wonderful homemade soaps! Some of them are even made with local bee pollen!


As you can see we are still very busy doing what we love...growing and producing for you!
