Bluegrass Farmers' Market Week Three!

Geez, I hate to start out by saying that it might rain...again! So, I'll start by saying thank you so much to the folks who braved the rainy cold day last Saturday to visit the Bluegrass Farmers' Market. You have no idea how much it meant to us to see how much you support us. Unfortunately the weather folks are saying that it will probably rain again this Saturday. But, it will be warmer! And, the Bluegrass Lake ducks will be in attendance!


I'm gonna do my best to list what should be at the market on Saturday. I say that because the farmers just don't know what the weather will bring their way. So, here goes...


ASPARAGUS

STRAWBERRIES

GREEN TOMATOES

GREEN BEANS

CUCUMBERS

POTATOES

ONIONS

BOK CHOY

RHUBARB

LETTUCE MIX

ROMAINE LETTUCE

ZUCCHINI

EGGS

HERB SEASONING

HONEY

FRUIT JAMS

HOMEMADE SOAPS

CUT FLOWERS

BEDDING PLANTS

HERB PLANTS

HEIRLOOM TOMATO PLANTS

ETC., ETC., ETC.!


There is a chance of some rain but please, do not let that stop you from visiting the market. We try to make the best of a rainy day and folks can autograph their very own “Bluegrass Lake” duck if a lake happens to appear in the parking lot! Lol I'm serious...the kids (of all ages) love it. Hey, make the best of a bad situation!


So, come join us for week three of

Lexington's largest homegrown/produced

farmers market!

The Bluegrass Farmers' Market is back!

Opening day for the 2012 season of the Bluegrass Farmers' Market was wonderful, amazing, awesome and spectacular! To put it all into one word... it was “wondamazawtacular!” I believe that is how I am going to describe the BGM from now on. :)


Our faithful customers visited us steadily all day long. They were sooooo glad to see our farmers back in their usual spaces. And, believe me, we were glad to see their smiling faces. Farmers really do love getting their hands dirty but it's the smile on the faces of the recipients of their labor that warms their hearts. We all thank you for your loyal support, it's what keeps us going!


I have to admit that I was very surprised to see local homegrown strawberries and zucchini on opening day...yup, they were there and they both sold out early! Look for more this Saturday. :)


Here's a bit more of what you'll find this Saturday at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market...

The Bluegrass Farmers' Market Shines on Opening Day!

WOW, what a great opening day! :) Our customers were thrilled to see us back and the farmers were happy to be able to bring their farm fresh items to the market! It rained a bit, but not enough to dampen the spirit of shoppers or farmers. Thank you all for making us feel so welcome in your neighborhood.


We had strawberries, eggs, zucchini, lettuce, bok choy, nappa cabbage, kale, swiss chard, rhubarb, asparagus, onions, potatoes, baked goods, pepper jams, fruit jams, herb seasoning, dried beans, homemade soaps, bedding plants, herb plants, veggies plants and so much more! And, next week seems like we'll have even more!

What a great start to our 2012 market season...we're excited about our “new to the Richmond Rd. location” farmers. It was unfortunate that the MillPond Center market could not continue due to a little problem with a certain grocery store chain not wanting competition. Oh well, that just means that our main location on Richmond Rd. will be much bigger and have more offerings with our “transplanted” farmers joining us! :)


Stay tuned for an update on what will be available this week...it's gonna be great!!!

 
 

Today, Tomorrow and Then We Open The Bluegrass Farmers' Market!

The Bluegrass Farmers' Market Opens on Saturday!

Yippee!!! It's finally here...the opening day of the 2012 season! That's right, we open this Saturday at 9am! Okay, can you tell I am excited? lol


I have spoken to a few of the farmers and it appears that this warm spell has been both a blessing and a real pain in the you know what. Some plants bloomed way too early and therefore are spent before the market opens. That would be the case of our lilacs...they were beautiful two weeks ago. Sorry we can't bring them to the market, but smile knowing that we enjoyed the lovely color and the fragrant scent.


On the good side, many of the plants are enjoying the warmth and sunshine and so are the laying hens! Yup, eggs will be plentiful on Saturday. I can't wait to get some farm fresh eggs, the grocery store eggs have seen the last of me for the season. A few more “gotta haves” include pepper jam, fruit jams and honey. And, I can guarantee that we'll have a beautiful butter crunch lettuce salad on Saturday night. Herb seasoning and homemade soap will round out my shopping day! :)


It's gonna be a great opening day, so come by and join us while we celebrate our opening day!
