Celebration Saturday at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market!

This weekend is a time to celebrate. We get to bust out the red, white and blue and enjoy our freedom by watching parades, smiling at firework displays and eating summertime favorites at picnics. Yup, it's the 4th of July or Independence Day! A day to celebrate our wonderful country and the people that make it so great. That means the folks who work hard to provide us all with the one thing we all need...food! And, there's no better way to show how much we appreciate the farmers than to support them by buying locally grown, raised or produced food. The Bluegrass Farmers' Market is Lexington's largest 100% homegrown/produced farmers market. That means that our farmers actually grew the fruits and veggies, raised the cattle, baked the breads, made the jams and nothing has been purchased for resale! We guarantee it, it's the way a farmers market should be.


Okay, I can't think of anything better on my July 4th picnic table than fresh grilled corn, sliced tomatoes and a juicy burger! Guess what? We have all of it available...yes, we have the season's first corn!!! But that's not all we have...here's a bit of what will be available at our two markets this Saturday.

Bluegrass Farmers' Market Saturday Goodies!

This is it...the last week of spring and the official start of summer! That means that we are getting closer to corn season in Kentucky! It seems to be one of the crops that customers want more than anything. The other one would be tomatoes and we have those right now at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market!


After a long, cold winter and a very wet spring nothing seems to taste better than fresh veggies from the market! Grocery store stuff just doesn't get it. Try grilling a total vegetable meal made up of squash, sweet onions, tomatoes, zucchini, broccoli and even greens! Yup, you can take any variety of greens...kale, Swiss chard, etc. and place a good handful into a foil package, sprinkle with some salt, pepper and a wee bit of olive oil and grill along with your other veggies! Of course, you could get adventurous and try some herb seasoning too...it's available at the market each Saturday.


Don't forget that special guy in your life! This Sunday is Father's Day and what a great treat it would be if you made him king for the day! Start out with a special breakfast omelet made with fresh country eggs (just got a call and there will be NO eggs at the market this week, sorry) and fresh veggies. How about a burger on the grill for lunch...top it with fresh tomatoes and onions! Dinner can be a very special event with a wonderful steak from one of our local beef producers. And, on the side serve some steamed new potatoes and broccoli! How about a bowl of fresh blueberries or a jam cake or a chocolate zucchini cake to make the meal complete! Okay...I'm hungry now and I am not even a dad!!! What a great way to say I love you to your dad! :)

Saturday at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market!

 

It seems to me that we were all complaining about the rain just a short time ago. Now it seems like we need it again. But, I sure do hope that it holds off this Saturday. Rainy market days are no fun for customers and farmers alike. Guess the weather and Mother Nature is the reason that farming for a living is such a risky business! And, yes...it is a business as well as being a passion. Our farmers come from all walks of life, from the backyard gardener who is passionate about heirlooms to the farmer who plants row after row of veggies on two different farms! The great part is that no matter how small or large our farmers business is, you can be assured that they grew or raised everything that they sell! Don't forget they also create value added items like jams, baked goods and herb seasoning too! The business of farming is a whole bunch more than putting a seed in the ground and hoping it grows...although I do that every year with mixed results. Lol So, what will our wonderful farmers be bringing to the market this Saturday? Here's a hint...


TOMATOES

GREEN BEANS

LETTUCE

SQUASH

ZUCCHINI

POTATOES

RADISHES

GREENS

ONIONS

SUGAR SNAP PEAS

BROCCOLI

SHELL PEAS

CABBAGE

It's gonna be a "J" day at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market!

Why is it a "J" day?

That's because Judy, Jane, John and Jonathon will be selling their goodies this Tuesday!


Look for Judy to bring her wonderful jams, probably the last of the strawberries...but, the first of the blueberries!


Jane is back and she'll be bringing her great basil, beautiful cut flowers, sugar snap peas, garlic scapes, green onions and lettuce!

John will be coming from Science Hill loaded down with his delicious homegrown tomatoes, cucumbers and lettuce!

If you are looking for beautiful hanging baskets, then Jonathon is the farmer to see! They are just gorgeous, full and reasonably priced! Maybe you need some bedding plants or herbs...he has those too. And, he'll be bringing broccoli, green onions, shell peas and sugar snaps!


It won't be just a “J” day at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market because Vicki from Botanica will be there too. She'll be bringing her herb plants, assorted hanging baskets and planters.


And, you never know who else just might show up!!!

Sunny Saturday at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market!

 

Officially it is still springtime, but you'd never know it by the heat wave we've been having. And, that means that the summer crops are making their presence a wee bit early...look for green beans, tomatoes, cucumbers and maybe even some raspberries this Saturday at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market! Of course you'll still find some spring fruits and veggies too...look for strawberries, asparagus, lettuce, green onions, spinach, sugar snap peas and greens!


What else will our farmers be bringing to the market on Saturday? How about rhubarb, eggs, honey, baked goods, jams & jellies, herb seasoning, veggie and herb plants and hanging baskets galore! Who knows what else might make its way to the market...I am surprised almost every Saturday. :)


Wanna know what other exciting things are going to happen at Lexington's only 100% homegrown/produced farmers market? I'll give you a hint...the Bluegrass Farmers' Market was voted #1 in Kentucky last year by you, our loyal customers! Yes, you get to vote for us again this year and that also means we have to show our appreciation...that means more events coming up at the market! Stay tuned for more information.
