I always hate being the bearer of bad news,but here goes...the Stonewall Center market has closed for the 2013 season. It was a great new market for us and we certainly appreciated the support that our new customers showed us.
The really great news...the Richmond Rd. market will be open through October 26th! That means that you have two more weeks to stock up on all that our farmers have to offer! Think canning, freezing, drying or just stocking up on “we've already done the work for ya” items like jams, jellies, herb seasoning, bean soup mixes and homemade soaps. They make great gifts too! :)
So, what will you be able to find this Saturday at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market?
Kirby Overman will be bringing his wonderful tomatoes!
Linda from McMaine's Riverhaven Farm will be bringing her super pepper selection...hot, sweet and in between! Tomatoes and okra will be in short supply, so shop early. She'll be bringing pie pumpkins too! Pepper and fruit jams...including grape jelly! And, if you are looking for a perfect gift...think a jar of beautifully layered dried bean soup mix!
Jane O'Tiernan will be bringing her beautiful cut flowers...believe me they are full of color and are sure to brighten any day! Her basil is great too!
Judy at Caludi's Fields will have heirloom tomatoes and her wonderful fruit jams!
The folks at Hughes Farm will be making sure that the wonderful aromas from their grilling and cooking wafts through the market. Goat and lamb with fresh market veggies...it just doesn't get any better than that! Heck, yes it does...super delicious pumpkin baked goodies too! Don't forget that you can purchase their lamb and goat and cook it yourself! Just ask for some directions if you need to.
Tami and/or Tom from My Ole Kentucky Soap will be bringing their wonderful handmade bath soaps, laundry soaps and lotion to the market. They will also have soaps and soap dishes all wrapped up for gift giving! By the way, this might be your last chance to purchase their products at the market.
On Tapp Dairy will be bringing their wonderful free range eggs, chicken, beef, pork...bacon and hams too! Freshness just doesn't get any better!
The “we take the guesswork out of seasoning” Herb'n Renewal folks, Karin and Drew, will be bringing plenty of hand blended herb seasoning with them. These make great gifts and they always supply recipes! An extra added attraction will be walking onion sets from Tomatoes, etc.! You'll also be able to find the crowd favorite...Zucchini, Apple'n Oat Thingies. And, for the next two weeks, look for affordable gift baskets with soap, bath salts and an extra added surprise!
Sorry to say that the “Two Old Troubadours” will not be with us this Saturday...they will be delighting folks with their music at another location. But, they will be back to serenade us on our last market day!
There might be other surprises...somehow, farmers just happen to show up without letting anyone know, so you might find all sorts of other goodies!

And, speaking of our Facebook page...we'd love to have you as a friend! :)
