We had our annual meeting and it was so exciting to hear about what our farmers will be growing to bring to the market this year. We've been listening to our customers and that's what makes our farmers market so great.
For example, our farmer known for his banana trees and lily plants decided to utilize some of his farm to grow garlic this year! What a wonderful welcome to the Bluegrass Farmers' Market...fresh garlic! The herb seasoning folks are branching out a bit and trying their hand at growing a mini Bok Choy! And, from what I heard, there will be more of a variety of lettuces available this spring! The tomato guy is so excited about his heirloom plant selection for this year. And, I heard about all sorts of new selections that will be available in the bread and jam department! I love that one. :) Plus we had some new farmers interested in joining our market so who knows what they will bring...this should be a very exciting year for us!
By the way, we did decide to open a week earlier this year because we found that there would be enough participation to warrant it. Look for us on April 17th!
Homegrown and produced goodness is just around the corner, now if we can only get through the winter snow! lol
