I can't think of a better way to start the Memorial Day weekend out than a trip to the Bluegrass Farmers' Market. Family, friends, cooking outdoors using all locally grown foods...it just doesn't get any better than that! Please take a moment out of your festivities to remember those who served so bravely in order for us to enjoy the freedom that we have. We thank them and their families for the sacrifices they have made. Fly a flag in their honor!
Now, what will you be able to find at the market on Saturday for that Memorial Day picnic table? Here's just a sampling of what will be available...
ASH free beef
Jams & jellies
Hanging herb baskets
Hanging flower baskets
And so much more!
Thought I would share a recipe from Local Harvest...sounds like a perfect Memorial Day pie to me!
Lena May's Rhubarb Custard Pie
Start by mixing up your favorite double crust pie pastry, or readying your favorite pre-made crust (just don't tell Lena May).
Then mix the following ingredients together and put in an unbaked pie shell.
Dot the top with butter. Put on the top pie crust, seal, and bake at 350 degrees for 45 -- 60 minutes. (Add 7 minutes for high altitude).
Have a wonderful holiday weekend and sure hope you spend some of it with us at the Bluegrass Farmer's Market!

3450 Richmond Rd. in the Fast Signs and Pedal the Planet parking lot, right next to the Glenn Auto Mall.
Parking is always FREE and we are stroller and wheelchair friendly!
Because we think everyone who shops at a farmers market deserves to be talking to the farmer who grew, baked, made or created what they are selling!
We are Lexington's only 100% homegrown/produced farmers market!
