Give Thanks Saturday at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market!

Monday is a day of remembrance but not one where we grieve...but a day to celebrate the lives of those brave men and women who gave theirs so that we can enjoy our freedom! I can't think of a better way to honor them then to be with family and friends. Show your spirit and have a red, white and blue day and wave your flags proudly! Bust out the grills and feed the whole bunch grilled veggies, burgers, chops, hot dogs, etc. and don't forget the farm fresh strawberries and a nice bottle of wine for dessert!


The Bluegrass Farmers' Market will be celebrating Memorial Day in a big way! At least in a red way...strawberries are in! Ya just can't celebrate Memorial Day without strawberries! Lol


Here's a bit of what you'll find at each market this Saturday...


RICHMOND RD.


On Tapp Dairy will be bringing plenty of meats to grill...think Chorizo, Italian brats, pork brats, pork chops or maybe a steak! All of their hogs are fed NON-GMO feed and raw milk from grass fed cows! Don't forget the farm fresh eggs!


Grimes Mill Winery will have their award winning Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon and Bianca wines plus many more...and you can even sample them! :) They are very proud of their silver and gold medals at the Indianapolis International Wine Competition and we don't blame them!


Jane's Garden, Flowers & Herbs will have Black Seeded Simpson lettuce, organically grown Beefsteak tomato plants and her always beautiful cut flower bouquets to brighten up your picnic table!


McMaine's Riverhaven Farm will have their wonderful pepper jams, bean soup mix and loads of great baked goods...think chocolate zucchini cake for dessert! If you are looking for something new to add to your Memorial Day meal, how about some Asian greens! Don't forget the Sugar Ann peas...crunchy and delicious! Arugula and lettuce would be the perfect side dish to that grilled steak!


My Ole Kentucky Soap will be bringing their wonderful soaps made with locally brewed beer!


JP Foods will have their fantastic pimento cheese blends...try the Bourbon Smoked Pimento Cheese Spread! It's great on a grilled burger!

They'll be bringing their hand blended herb seasonings...something for everything that you grill be it beef, pork, chicken, ribs or veggies! And, the celebration continues with free sun visors for the kids! Yup, they will be giving away a limited supply of brightly colored visors to the little shoppers at the market...heck, you might even get your name on one! Don't forget the delicious Zucchini, Apple'n Oat Thingies!


Caludi's Fields will be making their first appearance at the 2104 market this Saturday! Look for their wonderful strawberries but not until around 10AM because they harvest early that morning! Something tells me that you'll find fruit jams too!
