Tomorrow is the big day. The Bluegrass Farmers' Market will be opening for the 2014 market season on Saturday! Sounds like Mother Nature is going to give us some beautiful weather too! We'd love to get a chance to say hi to our customers...new and returning, so stop by and visit with us. We really have missed everyone this winter.
As promised, here is a list of the farmers and producers that have taken time out of their busy schedule to email me with what they will be bringing to the market tomorrow. The list seems a bit short but I can almost guarantee that there will be more smiling faces that show up. As you all know, the weather has not really cooperated so some farmers, like Botanica, Jane's Flowers and Herbs and Reece Garden, let me know that their goodness might take a few weeks. But, they will be back! That's the price you pay when you are a 100% homegrown/producer market...no corn in April!
These folks will definitely be at the market...
Stone Burr Farm will be bringing lamb for you Easter dinner!
My Ole Kentucky Soap will be bringing their local brew beer soap and local goat's milk soap!
Roger Postley of Tomatoes, Etc will have some Purple Ruffle Basil plants and maybe some other herb plants. He'll be taking orders for his heirloom pepper and tomato plants too!
Herb'n Renewal will be loaded down with their hand blended herb seasoning, handcrafted glycerin soaps, catnip for the kitties and lavender sachets. Don't forget the Zucchini, Apple'n Oat Thingies!
Cripple Creek Farm, new to our market this year, will be bringing jams, jellies, homemade strawberry and cherry pie fillings, farm fresh eggs and gluten free bread!
McMaine's Riverhaven Farm will be bringing hot pepper, spiced tomato, hot spiced tomato, Concord grape and Niagara grape jelly. And they also hope to have chocolate zucchini cake, zucchini bread, pumpkin cookies and some dried products!
And, who knows what other surprises you might find! :)
By the way, Roger and Clay, the Two Troubadours will be on hand to entertain us all with their great music!
We have a big favor to ask each and every one of our FaceBook followers...could you please share with your friends. Each “share” will get the word out a bit more...the more folks that know about the Bluegrass Farmers' Market the better. It will help us grow and be able to offer more to you, our valued customers. :)
And, speaking of our Facebook page...we'd love to have you as a friend! :)
Check out our website too...it is in the process of being updated! You can link to our blog for updates and happenings from there too!
