The good news...the Bluegrass Farmers' Market is open through October 27th. The bad news...we only have 3 more weeks to go until the close of the 2012 market season.
The extra good news...our farmers still have plenty of wonderful tomatoes, peppers, squash, eggplant, etc. available! The unfortunate bad news...the local corn is really gone for the season. :(
The extra, extra good news...folks who have FMNP or SFMNP vouchers can still use them up until October 31st! Both programs are a great way for families and seniors to get the benefits of fresh, homegrown goodness at farmers markets. In case you did not realize this, each year the allotments are based on the previous years usage. So if you have a voucher, please use it in the next few weeks so that we can continue to make sure that everyone gets to enjoy our bounty. That news item is worth a bunch of extra goodness! :)
Now, for the very bestest ( I love that made up word) good news...what will be available this Saturday at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market!
PEPPERS...hot, sweet and in between!
TURNIPS...and their greens!
Cushaw, Kabocha, Butternut, Acorn, etc.
BEAN SOUP MIX
and, even READY MADE HOT LUNCHES!
ETC., ETC. ETC.
Don't forget the smiling faces that our farmers always bring to the market! :)
******** REMINDER ********
If you have any FMNP/SFMNP vouchers,
they need to be used by October 31, 2012!
