I sat down this morning and made a list of some of the items available this Saturday at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market and noticed that we had almost everything from A to Z! Have to admit that the only “Q” I could come up with was Quince and I don't think anyone at our market is making quince jam, so I had to fudge on that letter and use the word quality...something we all strive for at our market! The letter “U” stumped me too and then I thought of the tomatoes that aren't perfectly round and red...our farmers sell them as “seconds” even though there is absolutely nothing wrong with their innards! The only other letter that I had trouble with was “X” and it really bugged me so I started a search and found out that Xanthic means yellow and we have plenty of yellow fruits and veggies available.
So, here is my list of A to Z items available at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market this week...
Anaheim chile pepper, Apple butter
Butternut squash, Beets, Basil, Banana peppers, Beef, Blueberries, Baked goods
Cucumbers,Cantaloupe, Cushaw, Corn, Cut flowers

Krasnodar heirloom tomatoes, Kale
Peaches, Peppers, Potatoes

Vine ripe tomatoes
