I have to say that the one really great part of being a member of the Bluegrass Farmers' Market is the fact that members actually have a say in what happens at the market. We have an annual meeting where members can voice their opinions, discuss matters at hand and vote on whatever needs to be taken care of! We really are members and not just participants.
Well, that annual general membership meeting is coming up on Saturday, December 10, 2011. All members of the Bluegrass Farmers' Market should attend...it's your market and this is the time to bring up any suggestions that you might have! And, any farmer or producer who is considering joining the Bluegrass Farmers' Market is also welcome to attend...just remember that we are a 100% homegrown or produced market. If you buy anything to resell, we're sorry but you'll have to go to another market.
Please note that there is a change in the location of the meeting this year. Here are the specifics...
DATE: December 19, 2011
LOCATION: Meadowthorpe Presbyterian Church education building, 356 Hillsboro Avenue, Lexington, KY. The church is located in the back of the Meadowthorpe neighborhood.
DIRECTIONS: From Leestown Rd. (Exit 7 off of New Circle Rd.) head towards downtown. Turn right at the traffic light directly across from Kroger's (two blocks inside of New Circle Rd.) which is Boiling Springs Dr. This road goes to the back of the subdivision and right to the church area.
If you have any questions, please call Roger Postley at (859) 278-4846.
