Bluegrass Farmers' Market Weekday Offerings!

Wow, the heat wave continues! The Saturday market went on despite a 103 temperature reading in Lexington. That is a YIKES in my book but the record number of farmers showed up with trucks loaded with homegrown summer goodness! The really great part is, the customers showed up too! And, their four legged pals got some relief at the Stivers Bros. hydration station. Thank you fellas for thinking about our customers “kids!” :)


I walked through the Richmond Rd. market and I could not believe my eyes. The colors of summer were plentiful! Red tomatoes, green zucchini, yellow squash, purple eggplant, white onions, orange peppers and blue flowers. It was truly a sight to behold! I really appreciated the colors when I got home and tasted the flavors...Oh My Gosh! The corn is as sweet as can be. The crisp snap sound as I “did” my mess of beans assured me that I was going to have nothing but the freshest available. The wonderful scent of the fresh cucumbers added to the sweet candy onion slices were amazing. I found myself just standing there enjoying the fabulous aromas coming from my kitchen and I hadn't even started to cook! You should have seen and heard me as I cut up the cantaloupe...no, maybe it was better that I did that alone! HaHa! BTW, the seasons first cantaloupes are to die for.


I don't want to forget our Willow Oak market because I am sure that they had the same wonderful goodness available, I just didn't happen to be there. I do know that a few farmers sell at both locations so I know you can enjoy the same tempting sensations that I did and probably some different goodies too! :)


By now, I am sure that you all get the picture...the Bluegrass Farmers' Market has the very best, guaranteed 100% homegrown or produced goodness in the area! When you are a homegrown market it takes awhile to catch up to the other markets, but the wait is well worth it...we guarantee it!
