It's Derby Day this Saturday and Kentuckians know how to celebrate the Run for the Roses! The great part is you can shop at the market and still be home in plenty of time for the festivities. And, we've got the makings for a perfect Derby party at the market!
Here's a bit of what you'll be able to find on Derby Day at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market...
Robert will be bringing his wonderful lettuce, asparagus, arugula, green onions, spinach and rhubarb!
Linda will be making her first appearance this Saturday and she'll be bringing her wonderful pepper jams and jellies, the freshly baked zucchini bread and her wonderful chocolate zucchini cake. And, she'll be selling farm fresh eggs for a new farmer who can't make it to the market this week!
Judy is coming loaded down with her fabulous jams, crisp asparagus and even some tomato plants for the gardener in all of us!
Jane is going to be at the market this week! So everyone can actually get to tell her how much you've enjoyed her lettuce, cilantro and strawberries..she'll be bringing more this week!
Drew and Karin will probably have their rainy day set up again but they'll have all of their wonderful herb seasoning blends, homemade soaps, catnip, white sage incense and even some fresh cut mint for those juleps! And, for those of you who enjoyed the herb'n buns, there will be more!
Vicki will be bringing her wonderful herb baskets and herb plants so you can grow your own mint for next year! Make sure you ask her about the open house that she will be having on May 8th! Don't panic, someone else will be at the market with her beautiful plants on that day.
Roger is going to start bringing some of his heirloom pepper and tomato plants this week. Look for some Alpine strawberry plants and even some herb plants too!
Our own beef gal, Lauren, will only be at the market until 10am because she has to leave early in order to register for the Flying Pig Marathon! That's right...she's going to run this year. But before she leaves you'll still be able to get her wonderful ASH free beef. Just shop early!
There are rumors that we'll have a few new farmers this week too, so come out and give them a warm welcome. And, who knows what other farmers may show up!
