Opening day of the 2013 Bluegrass Farmers' Market was a hit! It was so nice to see so many smiling faces...farmer and customer alike! :) Unfortunately the recent cold weather didn't allow for much in the way of produce. That's one of the things that a 100% homegrown/produced market has to deal with and we sure do appreciate our customers understanding that the selection of homegrown produce was sparse. The good news...this Saturday promises to have a much better selection!
The folks at Rejoicing Acres will be bringing eggs, sweet taters, butternut squash and a limited amount of green beans, cucumbers, zucchini and kale.
Hughes Farm will be cooking breakfast with their farm fresh eggs and goat or lamb breakfast sausage. And, they prepare a lunch special too! Their freezers will be loaded with leg of lamb, lamb chops, ground lamb, sausages and lamb roasts. They'll also be bring their goat roasts, sausages and chops.
McMaine's Riverhaven Farm will be bringing their wonderful bean soup mix, delicious baked goods, jams and jellies along with crisp mesclun salad mixes, black seed simpson lettuce and baby kale !
Karin and Drew, the herb folks at Herb'n Renewal, will be back with their line of hand blended herb seasoning. They are the “we take the guesswork out of seasoning” folks! Don't forget the homemade soaps...gift baskets, catnip and lavender sachets too!
Roger Postley, of Tomatoes, etc., will be taking orders for his heirloom tomato and pepper plants.
One of our newest market members, My Ole Kentucky Soap, will be back with their unique handmade soaps and eco friendly homemade laundry detergent. Check out the KBBA ...that's Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale soap!
The beer cheese is back! The folks at Larry Mac's Cheese Spreads will be at the market on Saturday!
Our newest market member, On Tapp Dairy Farm, will be on hand this week with all cuts of veal, brats, hot dogs, sausage, bacon, smoked ham, pork cuts, beef burgers, eggs and a limited amount of chicken.
And, I can almost guarantee a few surprises to round out a perfect Saturday at the market!
