Homegrown Goodness at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market!

As folks say, the hazy, lazy days of summer have arrived! Except that our farmers are never lazy, no matter how hot and hazy it gets. They are working in the fields in order to provide our customers with nothing but the freshest and the best homegrown goodness. A walk through the Bluegrass Farmers' Market this Saturday will be a myriad of color and flavors to add to your culinary delights! Wow, how was that for a description of the wonderful fruits, veggies and other goodies at our 100% homegrown market. Lol


Don't forget, the Thursday market at the Willow Oak location is now open from 3 until 6! Today you'll find blackberries, blueberries and jams from Caludi Fields and green and wax beans, potatoes, cucumbers and green tomatoes from Emnett Acres.

This week at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market!

WOW, do we have even more reasons to be proud of our 100% homegrown/produced little market! Two of our members got to celebrate this week and we'd like to pat them both on the back!


Coleman Stivers who sells at the Richmond Rd. location along with his brother Calloway, was the statewide winner in the Kentucky Department of Agriculture’s Farmers Market Entrepreneur Contest, which was part of the FFA state convention held in Lexington last week. He developed a portfolio of his business and went through an interview process during the contest which was judged by members of the Kentucky Department of Agriculture. Quite an accomplishment for such a young farmer! And, by the way...his prize money was $350! WTG Coleman!


The annual Beer Cheese Festival in Winchester gave another member of our market a reason to celebrate...Larry Mac's Beer Cheese won 1st place in the commercial division! Good job Larry and Cheryl!


Okay, now on to the Bluegrass Farmers' Market happenings!


The report this week is going to seem a bit strange to our usual readers. I am combining both blogs and both market locations into one because I will be out of town and will not have any computer access. So, it's gonna seem like one big jumble of news for the whole week! I hope you can sort it out but if not...remember that both market locations will have nothing but homegrown goodness available! :)


Let's start with the Tuesday market at the Richmond Rd. location and who will be there...


Caludi's Fields - Blueberries, fruit jams and maybe even blackberries!

Jane's Garden Flowers and Herbs – Kale, broccoli, sugar snap peas, onions, new potatoes and beautiful cut flowers!

Rejoicing Acres – Tomatoes, zucchini, squash, sweet potatoes, new potatoes, green beans, cabbage and much more!

Larry Mac's Beer Cheese – Award winning beer cheese and spreads!

Corn is in at the Richmond Rd. location!




Add that to the tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, squash, zucchini, onions, potatoes, green beans, asparagus, kale, Swiss chard, garlic,cabbage, beets and the summer berries...blueberries, raspberries and blackberries and you have one heck of “it's not quite summer, but it sure looks like it” market!


The Richmond Rd. market will also have plenty of beautiful cut flowers, hanging baskets, herb plants, homemade soaps, fruit and pepper jams, baked goods, honey lip and hand balms, herb seasoning, eggs, mushrooms, beer cheese and a crowd favorite...locust honey!


The Willow Oak location opened last week and from what I hear it was a great success. The farmers and customers alike were very pleased with the turnout. Here's the list of items that I have been told would be available this Saturday...


Emnett Acres:  cabbage, broccoli, snap beans, squash, garlic, live basil
and potatoes.

Rejoicing Acres: tomatoes, kale, beans (both half runners and bush)
