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. :)
~*~ BIG NEWS ~*~

Yup, you can now shop each Tuesday from 3 until 6:30. Same great location with convenient parking and nothing but homegrown/produced goodness! I'll keep this blog updated each Monday so you will know what will be available at the Tuesday market.
But, before we even think about the Tuesday market, we have all sorts of great thins available at the Saturday market! Here's just a sampling of what you'll be able to find...
TOMATOES (limited amount)
JAMS & JELLIES
VEGGIE PLANTS (including heirlooms!)

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!

100% homegrown/produced farmers market!
And, each of our farmers are certified Kentucky Proud and GAP trained...
