Summer Goodness at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market!

Our thanks to everyone for making our Customer Appreciation Day one of the best ever! Both Saturday market locations had record crowds and we saw many smiling faces as we watched the flood of Wildcat blue market totes being filled with market goodies! Congratulations to all of our winners of the door prizes. I did get to watch our grand prize winner go through her tote bag that was loaded with something from every farmer at the market...she was thrilled! Everyone else will get to spend their Bluegrass Market Bucks in the coming weeks and those that won the gift certificates to Alafalfa restaurant...enjoy! :) Our farmers had a great time and we're already thinking about what to do for our wonderful customers in the near future.


We are happy to announce that the Mill Pond Shopping Center satellite market is going to start selling on Thursday afternoons from 3 until 6:30...that's in addition to the Saturday market! Our little market sure has grown from the original 10 farmers at our Richmond Rd. location...we're almost 30 farmers strong now! And, we had a waiting list which is why we now have the satellite market. All I can say is that you'll find 100% homegrown goodness at both market locations!!!

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!
