Sunny Saturday at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market!

I truly believe that this just might be a Mother Nature “yippee” kind of Saturday at the market. Finally a market day without rain!


Look for all sorts of fresh, homegrown spring goodness. You'll find asparagus, crisp lettuce, various greens, carrots, radishes, rhubarb, green onions and even some arugula! Of course, you can't pass up the honey, baked goods, wonderful homemade fruit jams and hand blended herb seasoning. Don't forget to stop by and talk to our resident “tomato guy” and find out which heirloom plants will best suit your home garden.


Yup, it's gonna be soooooo nice to see some sun this Saturday! We hope you all come out and see the smiles on our faces. :)


Free and convenient parking and we are wheelchair and stroller friendly!

Saturday at the BGFM!

Looks like Mother Nature might be sending us some rain tomorrow. But, we'll still be there with fresh spring goodies like asparagus, lettuce, greens, onions and radishes. Of course, you'll also be able to find some wonderful jams, whipped honey, baked goods and herb seasoning.  And, Roger, the tomato guy will be there taking orders for his wonderful heirloom maters!


As I was typing up the list of available items I started to think that it sure doesn't look like much will be available...what, no corn or tomatoes? Then I remembered that the Bluegrass Farmers' Market is just that, a real farmers market with 100% homegrown or produced items. Unfortunately that does mean that you won't find corn or tomatoes tomorrow because they are not in season in Kentucky! Instead, you'll be guaranteed that you are supporting honest to gosh real farmers who grow instead of buying to resell. We think it's worth the lack of a few items...especially on this Earth Day!


~*~ MARKET HOURS ~*~



Saturday 9 until 2 or until sold out

Tuesday market will open soon!


We'll be set up in the beautiful tree lined parking lot of Pedal the Planet and Fast Signs, right next door to the Glenn Auto Mall on Richmond Rd. It's just a hop, skip and a jump outside of Man 'O War Blvd. Parking is right there so you don't have to drive around hunting for a spot to park. The parking lot is also paved and that makes it very stroller and wheelchair friendly!



The Bluegrass Farmers' Market is Lexington's only

100% homegrown/produced farmers market!


And, each of our farmers are certified Kentucky Proud!

 
 

Bluegrass Farmers' Market opening day report!

Opening day wasn't exactly what we had hoped for...weather wise. But, our loyal customers sure made the day worthwhile! It was cold, windy and rainy most of the day and the cars still kept pulling in and folks came up to our farmers to let them know how thrilled they were to have us back. Of course, they bought goodies too. In fact, the lettuce, asparagus, radishes and green onions all sold out early.


I did ask the farmers if they were ready for the Tuesday market and found out that NO...they are not. I promise that I will let you know when the Bluegrass Farmers' Market will be opening on Tuesday's. Until then, mark off Saturday morning on your calendar.



 
 

Bluegrass Farmers' Market Opens For The 2011 Season!!

Yup, it's that time again...the Bluegrass Farmers' Market opens their 2011 season this Saturday!


It's been a long winter and our farmers are raring to go. In fact, they are so darn busy only a few have let me know what they will be bringing to the market on opening day!


I do know that our tomato guy, Roger, will be on hand to take orders for his heirloom tomato and pepper plants. The folks from Herb'n Renewal will be there with their hand blended herb seasoning and wonderful Zuckie cookies! Judy will be bringing her great homemade jams and her fresh asparagus. I will try to update as I hear from our farmers but I can imagine springs finest locally grown...lettuce, green onions, radishes, etc...will be available on Saturday.  UPDATE...Robert will be bringing asparagus and other spring goodies.  And, I have been told that Kirby will be coming with spring veggies too!


We're looking forward to seeing all of your smiling faces this Saturday, April 16th!
