Saturday is the big day in Kentucky...it's the running of the 140th Kentucky Derby! It sounds like Mother Nature might let the sun shine on those attending the Derby and that means a nice day at the market too! I'm sure you'll see at least one Derby bonnet and smiles galore in anticipation of the possibility of your horse winning.
Some more winning news...next Saturday, May 10th, is the opening of our satellite market location at AZUR Restaurant & Patio! We're excited about our partnership with Chef Jeremy Ashby and hope that folks in the Beaumont Centre area mark their calendars and visit the farmers at our newest location...next week. Remember, our original location in the parking lot of our sponsors, Pedal the Planet and Fast Signs, will continue business as usual!
Now on to what you'll find this Saturday at the Richmond Rd. market...
Stone Burr Farm will be bringing their delicious lamb!!

We have a big favor to ask each and every one of our FaceBook followers...could you please share with your friends. Each “share” will get the word out a bit more...the more folks that know about the Bluegrass Farmers' Market the better. It will help us grow and be able to offer more to you, our valued customers. :)
