Celebrate Dad at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market!

This Sunday is the day to celebrate that wonderful man in your life, be he the father of your children, your dad, grandfather or a step-dad. It's Father's Day! Make him king for the day by treating him to some special meals made with honest to gosh 100% homegrown goodness from the Bluegrass Farmers' Market! Start the day out with farm fresh eggs and either nitrate free bacon or non-GMO sausage and fried green tomatoes. Lunch can be a great big salad made with crisp garden lettuce mixes and salad dressing that you make with herb seasonings. And, dinner can be extra special...bust out the grill and throw a steak, Kobe burgers or maybe even pork or veal chops on it. Serve it with grilled onions, mushrooms, summer squash, new potatoes and some wonderful kale. Don't forget something sweet for dessert and a glass of local wine. Flowers on the table can make any meal extra special. Let dad know how special he is by serving him nothing but the best from the largest 100% homegrown/produced farmers market in Lexington!
