Derby Day at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market

Saturday is “D Day” in Kentucky! If you are privileged enough to live in this great Commonwealth of Kentucky, then you know exactly what I am talking about when I say “D Day”...it's Derby Day!!! That means fast horses, plenty of fresh Kentucky spring fruits, veggies and of course...mint for those juleps!


The Bluegrass Farmers' Market members will be celebrating the greatest two minutes in sports by bringing their own claim to fame...great homegrown fruits and veggies! Start your Derby Day off with some wonderful farm fresh eggs. Derby lunch would be wonderful if you included a crisp spring lettuce or mixed green salad with a vinaigrette made with fresh strawberries and award winning honey. It will soon be time to stand up and sing “My Old Kentucky Home” as the Derby contenders are led out onto the race track at Churchill Downs. Of course you'll be sipping an icy cold mint julep that has been flavored and adorned with beautiful Kentucky grown mint! Once the excitement of cashing in that winning ticket subsides, it's time for something fresh and light like a cold cucumber sandwich, steamed veggie platter with fresh asparagus or maybe just a slice of a wonderful home baked zucchini bread. It doesn't matter...it's Derby Day!
