Tuesday at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market!

Now that we have actually had a few days without rain, it is time to start thinking about getting out in your yard and planting! Or maybe you are just looking for a hanging basket to brighten up your deck or patio. The good news is...the Bluegrass Farmers' Market will have veggie plants, herb plants, bedding plants and beautiful hanging baskets this Tuesday!


Okay, so maybe growing your own veggies and fruits is not your thing. That's okay too, because our farmers will be bringing strawberries, lettuce, onions and various greens to the Tuesday market! And, don't forget the wonderful jams and jellies!


Just a little tidbit to get you excited about the Saturday market...look for green beans, cucumbers and maybe even red raspberries to make a showing! Yup, summer is almost here. :)

Saturday 9 until 2 or until sold out

Tuesday 3 until 6:30 or sold out


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!

Tuesday at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market

It's Tuesday market time! The farmer participation is still a bit small but it will be growing each week as the growing season picks up. If you are looking for wonderful homegrown, local strawberries then the Bluegrass Farmers' Market is the place to be this Tuesday! You'll find other spring veggies like asparagus, lettuce and radishes too! Don't forget the wonderful homemade jams and jellies. Or, the beautiful hanging floral baskets, herb plants and veggie plants.


So, stop by on your way home from work...we're open until 6:30! Or, beat the traffic and shop early...we open at 3!


Where are we located at 3450 Richmond Rd. in the tree lined parking lot of Pedal the Planet and Fast Signs...right next to the Glenn Auto Mall. Plenty of free and convenient parking.


Remember, we are Lexington's only

100% homegrown/produced farmers market...we guarantee it!

Of course, that means no locally grown corn yet!

But...it's coming! :)

 
 

Saturday at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market!

I couldn't believe that I actually saw red tomatoes at the market last Saturday! Granted, they were grown in a greenhouse and there were not many of them...but what a treat after a rainy and cold day. We thoroughly enjoyed a BLT with locally grown vegetables and homemade bread! The tomato was sweet, the lettuce was crisp and the bread was wonderful!!! Honest to gosh locally grown and produced is well worth the trip to the Bluegrass Farmers' Market. :)

Saturday at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market!

I have come to a conclusion...the weather in Kentucky makes absolutely no sense to anyone! We've had weeks of rain. Below average temperatures for this time of the year. Definite lack of sunshine. Spring has supposedly “sprung” but what exactly does that mean? The past two days have been more like the middle of summer with the heat and humidity! And, who knows...we could have snow by the weekend. Just kidding...I hope!


What I am trying to get across is how hard it is for farmers to bring their bounty to the market each week. They plan all winter long and look forward to early spring to sow their seeds. Then they keep their fingers crossed for great weather...hopefully that happens. This year it has not but our farmers continue to show up each Saturday with the best they have to offer and let me tell you...it has been great!!! Here's a bit of what you find this Saturday! :)

Derby Day at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market!

 

It was so nice to see the sun shine last Saturday! Hopefully Mother Nature will be almost as nice this week. Somehow the Kentucky Derby is so much more fun to watch when the sun is shining. And, Mother's Day is not quite as happy when it is raining...mom deserves a bright and sunny day. :)


Let's start with Derby Day and the wonderful goodies available to make your party a true Kentucky experience. You can't have a derby meal without asparagus and we'll have plenty available! Derby Day means spring time and what's better than a fresh lettuce, green onion and radish salad! But, the one item that truly means Kentucky Derby is mint!!! Every proper mint julep deserves Kentucky Colonel Mint and you'll be able to find that this Saturday too! So, start your Derby Day out early by joining us at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market.


Next comes Mother's Day on Sunday! How about a beautiful plant or day lily for the special mom in your life. Maybe something sweet just like she is...jam cake or honey! Or, you could prepare a special meal for her using hand blended herb seasoning on those wonderful fresh veggies! Wishing all those special gals a Happy Mother's Day!


Even with all of the rainy weather lately, the BGFM is growing as the season progresses! Remember, we are a 100% homegrown/produced market...that means no corn or tomatoes yet! But, we do have mater plants!!! Here's a bit of what you'll find on Saturday...
