Exciting Times At The Bluegrass Farmers' Market!

Happy sunny Sunday to all! :)


Folks, we have some great times in the Bluegrass coming up! First off, the biggie of the year...the 140th running of the Kentucky Derby on May 3rd. I don't care what you say, if you live in the Commonwealth, it is a special day. Kinda like making it to the Final Four with hooves instead of a basketball! The eyes of the world are on Kentucky for at least one special day every year and we shine! :)


Once we get past that Derby fever, it's gonna be time to celebrate something else...the Bluegrass Farmers' Market will be opening their second location on May 10th! Yup, not only will you be able to shop at our original location at 3450 Richmond Rd in the parking lot of Pedal the Planet and Fast Signs...you'll now be able to visit us at AZUR Restaurant & Patio at 3070 Lakecrest Circle in Beaumont Centre!


We're excited about our partnership with AZUR and hope you all make our farmers feel welcome once we start selling our market goodness! . So mark your calendars...May 10th is the day! Until then, you can find those same wonderful 100% homegrown/produced goodies at our Richmond Rd. location.

Super Saturday at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market!

It looks like Mother Nature will be shining down on us this Saturday! :) Perfect weather for a trip to the Bluegrass Farmers' Market!


Our farmers have been struggling with the cold temperatures, so many of the usual spring offerings are going to be a bit late this year. That's the price you pay to have a 100% homegrown/produced market. Take my word for it...they want to be at the market as much as our customers want to see them. Each week we are seeing more and this Saturday you'll even find a new to the market veggie. The folks at McMaine's Riverhaven Farm will be bringing some Komatsuna, a form of Japanese mustard greens. Curiosity got the best of me and I did some research for recipes...it sounds wonderful and very versatile so check it out. This would be a perfect time to try something new and exciting while you wait for the “normal” spring greens to arrive...who knows, you might find a new favorite!


Here's just a bit of what you'll find on Saturday and please remember that we are growing each week as Mother Nature allows!


Stone Burr Farm will be bringing their delicious lamb!!


My Ole Kentucky Soap will be bringing their local brew beer soap and local goat's milk soap!


Roger Postley of Tomatoes, Etc will have some Purple Ruffle Basil plants and maybe some other herb plants like Chives, Cutting Celery (a must have for any herb garden) and Parsley. If you are looking for an unusual plant...try the Egyptian Walking Onion sets that he'll be bringing too! Roger will also be taking orders for his heirloom pepper and tomato plants!


Herb'n Renewal will be loaded down with their hand blended herb seasoning, handcrafted glycerin soaps, catnip for the kitties and lavender sachets. Don't forget the Zucchini, Apple'n Oat Thingies! And, make sure you stop by and get a treat for your four-legged friend.


Cripple Creek Farm, new to our market this year, will be bringing jams, jellies, homemade strawberry and cherry pie fillings, gluten and grain free breads, garlic and herb breadsticks, Amish white, sourdough, banana nut and zucchini breads too! They sold out of their spring asparagus quickly last week but they have promised to bring more! And maybe even some lettuce!


McMaine's Riverhaven Farm will be bringing hot pepper, spiced tomato, hot spiced tomato jams, Concord grape and Niagara grape jelly. Dried tomatoes and okra. The wonderful dried bean soup mix is back! And for that sweet tooth, look for chocolate zucchini cake, zucchini bread, pumpkin pecan cookies! As mentioned, the Komatsuna, Mizuna, Red Russian kale. We'll also have a limited supply of green onions and arugula!


Kelly's Kobe Beef, another new farmer this year, will be bringing their farm fresh eggs, Kobe beef and all sorts of pork cuts!


On Tapp Dairy will have plenty of pork, beef, chicken and veal cuts! And, farm fresh eggs too!


And, who knows what other surprises you might find! :)


Make sure you stop by and welcome our new members...they'd love to meet you. :)

Bluegrass Farmers' Market Opens Tomorrow!

Tomorrow is the big day. The Bluegrass Farmers' Market will be opening for the 2014 market season on Saturday! Sounds like Mother Nature is going to give us some beautiful weather too! We'd love to get a chance to say hi to our customers...new and returning, so stop by and visit with us. We really have missed everyone this winter.


As promised, here is a list of the farmers and producers that have taken time out of their busy schedule to email me with what they will be bringing to the market tomorrow. The list seems a bit short but I can almost guarantee that there will be more smiling faces that show up. As you all know, the weather has not really cooperated so some farmers, like Botanica, Jane's Flowers and Herbs and Reece Garden, let me know that their goodness might take a few weeks. But, they will be back! That's the price you pay when you are a 100% homegrown/producer market...no corn in April!


These folks will definitely be at the market...


Stone Burr Farm will be bringing lamb for you Easter dinner!


My Ole Kentucky Soap will be bringing their local brew beer soap and local goat's milk soap!


Roger Postley of Tomatoes, Etc will have some Purple Ruffle Basil plants and maybe some other herb plants. He'll be taking orders for his heirloom pepper and tomato plants too!


Herb'n Renewal will be loaded down with their hand blended herb seasoning, handcrafted glycerin soaps, catnip for the kitties and lavender sachets. Don't forget the Zucchini, Apple'n Oat Thingies!

McMaine's Riverhaven Farm will be bringing hot pepper, spiced tomato, hot spiced tomato, Concord grape and Niagara grape jelly. And they also hope to have chocolate zucchini cake, zucchini bread, pumpkin cookies and some dried products!



And, who knows what other surprises you might find! :)

Bluegrass Farmers' Market 2014 Season Opener!

Well folks...today is the last Saturday that our farmers get to sleep in until November! Not that many of them do that anyway...it's just the thought. lol


The opening of the 2014 Bluegrass Farmers' Market season is next Saturday, April 12th! Let's hope that the day is as pretty as today. It's been a rough winter for many of our farmers and some crops might be a little later than usual arriving at the market but I'm sure there will still be plenty of goodies available. We'll try to keep everyone updated on what you might find at the market. I do know one thing...we have some new members this year and as always, they are guaranteed to be bringing only 100% Kentucky Proud homegrown goodness! Our members are proud to say that everything available to their customers was grown, raised, baked or made by them...we are Lexington's largest 100% homegrown/produced farmers market! :)


We also will be opening a second Saturday market at Azur restaurant and patio located in Beaumont Centre! The opening date for that is slated for May 10th. We'll keep you up to date on the happenings.
