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! :)
AND, SO MUCH MORE!
~*~ 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 and trained in the GAP program...Good Agricultural Practices!
