[ Member listing ]

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!
