Bluegrass Farmers' Market Goodness!

Today is Thursday and that means the Willow Oak market will be open from 3 until 6. Here's the market report from Tom of Emnett Acres...he's the go to guy when it comes to the Willow Oak market location! :)



“Our market wares covered the full spectrum of cane fruits and blueberries from Caludis, as well as Judi's homemade preserves.


I will have a good supply of Jade snap beans.


Rejoicing will have both Blue Lake and Tema beans to compliment their tomatoes.


Clark will have plenty of squash varieties, including the usual Pattie Pan.


Kathy Claibourne (sp) will have both water melons as well as cantelope.


Jones can be counted on to provide half runner beans and a good supply of sweet corn.


Our Thursday market had very good traffic until the am sharp thunderstorm hit a little after four. I an Kit Blake will be there again next week, and anyone else who wants is very welcome to come and sell.


Tom”

We have been proud to have been voted #1 in Kentucky (small market category) for the past two years and we're hoping to do it again. We need your vote! The great part is you can vote for more than one market, so if you shop at the big downtown market you can vote for it too! Tell your friends and family about us and let's continue the tradition of being the best! :)
