Bluegrass Farmers' Market Customer Appreciation Day!

I was talking to a friend who shops at a local farmers market in Illinois. The conversation headed in the direction of “what is local?” How do you define “local?” I thought about it and decided that “local” to me means that my fruits and veggies have not been in an 18 wheeler traveling across country...they come from within Kentucky. But then you have to consider another important thing when thinking “local” and that is, did the vendor at the market really grow it? Hmmmmm, we discussed this and we both agreed that is why we shop at farmers markets...we expect the vendor to be the farmer! My friend has the choice of three different markets in her area, 2 small and one large. She said that she started shopping at the large one because everyone else did. She asked a farmer what type of beans he was selling and the answer she got made her decide to venture to the smaller market. Know what the farmer said? It's a green bean! We both got a giggle on that answer! Lol


If “local” means the same to you as it does to me...grown/produced in Kentucky by the person selling it, then you will feel right at home at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market! We might be small, but we are a true farmers market in every way! And, to show our appreciation to our loyal customers, we are celebrating this Saturday!

It's our annual...
