That's Super Shrimp Saturday at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market! Yup, you'll be able to find local farm raised freshwater prawns or as we call them...shrimp, at the market this Saturday only. The graduate students from the Kentucky State University Aquaculture program will be at the market selling their shrimp that was raised in Frankfort. They'll have all sorts of information about preparing them, cleaning them and freezing them. And, the really great part is all of the proceeds from the sale will go back to the students for continued research! These are fresh shrimp, never frozen...so bring a cooler and ice!
Of course folks can't live on shrimp alone so bring your market tote too! We'll have plenty of farm fresh, 100% homegrown fruits and veggies available. Look for...
Peppers...hot and sweet
Squash...winter and summer
Jams & Jellies
Soap & Bath Salts
And, so much more!
Don't forget our Thursday market at the Fayette County Health Department!!!
Hope to see you all at Kentucky's #1 farmers market!
Free and convenient parking and no construction or road closures to worry about! We're a farmers market shoppers delight!
