It was so nice to see the sun shine last Saturday! Hopefully Mother Nature will be almost as nice this week. Somehow the Kentucky Derby is so much more fun to watch when the sun is shining. And, Mother's Day is not quite as happy when it is raining...mom deserves a bright and sunny day. :)
Let's start with Derby Day and the wonderful goodies available to make your party a true Kentucky experience. You can't have a derby meal without asparagus and we'll have plenty available! Derby Day means spring time and what's better than a fresh lettuce, green onion and radish salad! But, the one item that truly means Kentucky Derby is mint!!! Every proper mint julep deserves Kentucky Colonel Mint and you'll be able to find that this Saturday too! So, start your Derby Day out early by joining us at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market.
Next comes Mother's Day on Sunday! How about a beautiful plant or day lily for the special mom in your life. Maybe something sweet just like she is...jam cake or honey! Or, you could prepare a special meal for her using hand blended herb seasoning on those wonderful fresh veggies! Wishing all those special gals a Happy Mother's Day!
Even with all of the rainy weather lately, the BGFM is growing as the season progresses! Remember, we are a 100% homegrown/produced market...that means no corn or tomatoes yet! But, we do have mater plants!!! Here's a bit of what you'll find on Saturday...
AND, SO MUCH MORE!
~*~ MARKET HOURS ~*~
Saturday 9 until 2 or until sold out
Tuesday market will open soon!
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. It's just a hop, skip and a jump outside of Man 'O War Blvd. Parking is right there so you don't have to drive around hunting for a spot to park. The parking lot is also paved and that makes it very stroller and wheelchair friendly!
The Bluegrass Farmers' Market is Lexington's only
100% homegrown/produced farmers market!
And, each of our farmers are certified Kentucky Proud!
