Bluegrass Farmers' Market Happenings!

Yup, I do believe that fall is on its way! This cool weather has been a welcome change from the high 90's we had last week. But, unfortunately it also means that some of the summer goodness is about to make its last showing at the market. The local peaches will be in short supply and the cantaloupes have all but disappeared. The good news is they are making room for the wonderful fall/winter squash and broccoli!


Once again, we have to thank all of our loyal customers for voting for the Bluegrass Farmers' Market in the America's Favorite Farmers Market contest. Just in case you hadn't heard...we were voted #1 in Kentucky for the second year in a row! We certainly do appreciate you continued support.


Now, on to the important stuff...what's gonna be at the market this week provided the rain didn't wipe the crops 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!

****************************


Before I close this edition of our weekly blog, I would like to add something.

This weekend is one of remembrance. Ten years ago, the people of the United States of America saw first hand what an attack on our soil can do to a nation. Instead of falling apart, we came together as one and supported those that needed us. I am choosing to celebrate the lives of those that were lost on September 11, 2001...may they never be forgotten.
