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...
SPRING LETTUCE MIX
AND, SO MUCH MORE!
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 “Lake Bluegrass” 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 two of
Lexington's largest homegrown/produced

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!
