Saturday at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market!

 

It seems to me that we were all complaining about the rain just a short time ago. Now it seems like we need it again. But, I sure do hope that it holds off this Saturday. Rainy market days are no fun for customers and farmers alike. Guess the weather and Mother Nature is the reason that farming for a living is such a risky business! And, yes...it is a business as well as being a passion. Our farmers come from all walks of life, from the backyard gardener who is passionate about heirlooms to the farmer who plants row after row of veggies on two different farms! The great part is that no matter how small or large our farmers business is, you can be assured that they grew or raised everything that they sell! Don't forget they also create value added items like jams, baked goods and herb seasoning too! The business of farming is a whole bunch more than putting a seed in the ground and hoping it grows...although I do that every year with mixed results. Lol So, what will our wonderful farmers be bringing to the market this Saturday? Here's a hint...

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!
