Exciting 2010 Season Ahead!

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


Bad News and Good News!

Bad news...Our annual meeting was postponed due to the snow we had in Lexington last weekend.

Good news...That means we still have time to get some input from our customers!

So, tell us what you would like to see at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market  next season!

Even with all of our homegrown goodness, our farmers would like to know if we are missing out on something.  Maybe a pepper, tomato, specific type of potato or even something totally unique.  We'd love to hear from you so we can discuss the possibiltiy of offering more or different items at our market next year. 

Our become the very best market in Lexington!  We already know that we are the only 100% homegrown/produced one but we also want everyone to know that we are not affilated with the other market that allows reselling. 

It's not going to be easy because the "other" market has been around for years and while it started out as a "true" farmers market, things have changed.  That's the reason we started the Bluegrass Farmers' Market.  We wanted to offer customers nothing but locally grown or produced items!  And, each one of our member farmers must be certified Kentucky Proud...we don't do a group thing. 

You'll find many familiar famers at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market because they wanted a market that was truly for the farmers and producers in Kentucky!

So, tell us what you want to see at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market before our meeting on February 13th!
