We only have 17 days and one wake up before the market opens for its 2012 season!
17 days seemed very close when I was outside hanging my laundry on the line when I noticed “snow” falling all over my sheets. Of course it was the best sign of spring that we have on our farm...the budding Bradford Pear trees! I halfway smiled at the sight. I love it when spring “springs” and I see all of the new growth but I hate it when those buds stick to my sheets!
But, the market opening day is only 17 days away...well and one wake up day. :)
Okay, enough of my enjoying the beautiful weather. How about a Bluegrass Farmers' Market update! I have been informed by our fearless leader, Roger Postley, that we can expect a better than ever before farmer count on opening day! You know I will report back as to what you can expect to find but just the thought of more farmers on opening day is exciting. It's hard when you are a 100% homegrown/produced market to have a great showing in April...there are only so many things one can grow in Kentucky in the spring. Please, do not look for homegrown corn...it is way to early for honest to gosh homegrown Kentucky corn! But, I know that we'll have plenty of spring produce available.
So, mark your calendars...we open on April 14th!

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!
