Brrrrr, there's a wee bit of a chill in the air! But that won't stop our farmers from bringing their farm fresh goodies to the market. Besides, they know that there is only 3 more weeks of the market left for the 2009 season and they are sure folks will want to stock up on some stuff for the winter months. There's nothing like cooking with a fresh from your freezer tomato when there is snow on the ground! And, don't forget the wonderful peppers...they freeze great too! Potatoes will hold for quite some time if you keep them in a cool place. And, we all know that beef can be frozen. Did you know that you can wrap and freeze the wonderful breads too? I guess you can tell what I have been doing all summer. lol
Our freezer is full of tomatoes, corn, beans, peppers and even some zucchini bread! We're ready for the winter, how about you?
Here's a bit of what you will find this week at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market. Remember, it's all homegrown or produced by our farmers!
PEPPERS (HOT and SWEET)
ASH FREE BEEF
JAMS & JELLIES
BEAN SOUP MIX
AND SO MUCH MORE!

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!

Look for our new and bigger signs!
The Bluegrass Farmers' Market is Lexington's only
