Saturday Goodies at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market!

Saturday is the last day of the National Farmers Market Week and the perfect way to celebrate homegrown goodness is to shop at the largest local 100% homegrown/produced farmers market...the Bluegrass Farmers' Market! Yup, that's correct, our farmer members are inspected and we can guarantee that they grow, raise, produce, make or bake what is sold at our market! We do not allow any member to go to auctions and resell. We think that is the true meaning of a farmers market! So, we are proud to celebrate National Farmers Market Week with all of you by offering the very best and the freshest available.


Here's a partial list of what you will find this week at one of our markets...

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!
