Saturday Happenings at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market!

Have you talked to a “real” farmer lately? Sounds like a strange question but it really isn't when you think about it. Have you asked what type of green bean that is? What kind of corn is that? Is that an heirloom tomato and why doesn't it look perfectly round and red? What the heck does one do with that pepper...and is it hot? Should I use this potato to make “chips?” Can I grill this zucchini? How sweet is this melon? Is this organically grown? Did you really make that jam? Is that soap “vegan?” Why don't you have strawberries? Where is the lettuce? Who baked that? Are there chemicals in that meat? What kind of flower is that? Is it local honey?


I could go on with the questions that our farmers and producers are asked each week...and we love them because we can honestly answer each and every one of them! That's because we grew, raised, baked or made everything that we sell to you...our customers! So, the next time you have a question, feel free to talk to the farmer or producer at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market...they will know the answer...guaranteed because we only allow 100% growers and producers at our market!


So, now on to what goodness you'll be able to find this Saturday at one of our markets...
