Bluegrass Farmers' Market News!!!

We hope everyone had a great holiday weekend. I know that we enjoyed the fireworks, the patriotic music and most of all the fresh corn and tomatoes to go along with our hamburgers! To me the 4th of July holiday seems to be the real start of summer and all of the fresh goodness that comes with the warm weather. I'm talking corn, tomatoes, green beans, squash, new potatoes and peppers...it just doesn't get any better than that!


Our Tuesday market promises some great summer goodies! Look for...


TOMATOES

POTATOES

CUCUMBERS

SQUASH

GARLIC

ONIONS

PEPPERS

GREEN BEANS

CABBAGE

LEEKS

FRESH CUT HERBS

CUT FLOWERS

JAMS

AND MAYBE SOME BLUEBERRIES AND BLACKBERRIES!

Don't forget to mark your calendars...


July 16th is Customer Appreciation Day


at both market locations!



Speaking of “both” markets, we'd just like to let everyone know that our satellite market at Mill Pond Shopping Center is still going (and growing) strong even though there are no signs up. It seems like vandals stole the 4' x 8' banners and even took the posts that they were hanging from. We're not sure who would steal farmers market signs but the Lexington Police Department is looking into it. But, we're happy to report that it will be business as usual at Mill Pond! More good news about the satellite market...it's growing in leaps and bounds! In fact, one of our Richmond Rd. farmers, Robert from Stonehome Farm is now going to be selling at the new market! That just means that our customers might find that a trip to two markets each Saturday is the thing to do! :)





~*~ 2011 MARKET HOURS ~*~


Richmond Rd. Market


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!


Mill Pond Shopping Center Market


Saturday 9 until 2 or until sold out


We'll be set up in the shopping center with plenty of free parking. Look for us near the corner of Boston Rd. and Man 'O War Blvd.



The Bluegrass Farmers' Market is
