This is it...the last week of spring and the official start of summer! That means that we are getting closer to corn season in Kentucky! It seems to be one of the crops that customers want more than anything. The other one would be tomatoes and we have those right now at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market!
After a long, cold winter and a very wet spring nothing seems to taste better than fresh veggies from the market! Grocery store stuff just doesn't get it. Try grilling a total vegetable meal made up of squash, sweet onions, tomatoes, zucchini, broccoli and even greens! Yup, you can take any variety of greens...kale, Swiss chard, etc. and place a good handful into a foil package, sprinkle with some salt, pepper and a wee bit of olive oil and grill along with your other veggies! Of course, you could get adventurous and try some herb seasoning too...it's available at the market each Saturday.
Don't forget that special guy in your life! This Sunday is Father's Day and what a great treat it would be if you made him king for the day! Start out with a special breakfast omelet made with fresh country eggs (just got a call and there will be NO eggs at the market this week, sorry) and fresh veggies. How about a burger on the grill for lunch...top it with fresh tomatoes and onions! Dinner can be a very special event with a wonderful steak from one of our local beef producers. And, on the side serve some steamed new potatoes and broccoli! How about a bowl of fresh blueberries or a jam cake or a chocolate zucchini cake to make the meal complete! Okay...I'm hungry now and I am not even a dad!!! What a great way to say I love you to your dad! :)

We'll be set up in the beautiful tree lined parking lot of Pedal the Planet and Fast Signs, right next door to the Glenn Auto Mall on Richmond Rd.
