The Bluegrass Farmers' Market Second Location!

Another great weekend to celebrate twice!


Sunday is the day to give thanks to that wonderful woman who brought each and every one of us into this world...it's Mother's Day! Maybe you can surprise her by preparing a delicious Kobe or certified organic steak, a roasted free range chicken, a thick juicy pork chop or some wonderful lamb. Pair any of these items with a farm fresh side salad or some sauteed Asian greens. Don't forget the hand blended herb seasoning to enhance all of your dishes. You'll be able to find home baked goodies so that your dessert will be covered too. And, the table needs a centerpiece of fresh picked flowers. Mom deserves to be pampered with nothing but the best and our farmers and producers can guarantee all items are grown, raised, baked or made on their local farms!


Now for the second celebration...our newest market location at Azur Restaurant & Patio in Beaumont Centre opens on Saturday! We are pleased to partner with such a well known local chef who appreciates local foods, Jeremy Ashby! We're looking forward to a great working relationship with Chef Ashby and his staff.


Here's a bit of what you'll be able to find at each of our market locations on Saturday...and, you'll notice that a few farmers will be at both markets!


Richmond Road


Overman's BG Fruit & Vegetables will be bringing a variety of different lettuce including Black Seeded Simpson, Salad Bowl and Bibb...along with arugula!


McMaine's Riverhaven Farm will have lettuce blends, arugula and Asian greens including Mizuna, Komatsuma and Shungi Ku. Look for wonderful home baked goods, Concord and Niagara Grape jams, pepper jams and even some dried bean soup mix! A limited supply of Sugar Ann peas and asparagus will also be available!


Stone Burr Farm will be bringing their delicious lamb...all cuts!


Tomatoes, Etc, Roger Postley, will be bringing his heirloom tomato and pepper plants! He'll even have some eggplant transplants! Chive plants, a must have for any garden...think baked potatoes! If you are looking for an unusual plant...try the Egyptian Walking Onion sets that he'll be bringing too! He'll also be bringing his “gift for kids” tomorrow...wonderful Red Robin cherry tomato plants and the great part is, they come with instructions for parents!


Herb'n Renewal will be loaded down with their hand blended herb seasoning, handcrafted glycerin soaps, catnip for the kitties and lavender sachets. Don't forget the Zucchini, Apple'n Oat Thingies! And, make sure you stop by and get a treat for your four-legged friend. Remember that their dried herb seasoning does not do well in wet weather so if it is raining you might not see them. But if you were one of the lucky Derby winners, hang on to your ticket, it's good at any market day!


Kelly's Kobe Beef, a new farmer this year, will be bringing their farm fresh free range eggs, hormone and antibiotic free Kobe beef, all sorts of pork cuts and even no nitrate bacon!


On Tapp Dairy will have plenty of pork, Certified Organic beef, chicken, veal cuts and even hot dogs...all raised on non-GMO feed and antibiotic and hormone free! And, farm fresh free range eggs too!


Jane's Garden, Flowers & Herbs will be loaded down with fresh cut flowers...think mom! She'll also be bringing a very limited supply of lettuce and basil. She'll only be at the market until noon, so shop early!


Azur Restaurant & Patio


My Ole Kentucky Soap will be bringing their local brew beer soap and local goat's milk soap!


On Tapp Dairy will have plenty of pork, Certified Organic beef, chicken, veal cuts and even hot dogs...all raised on non-GMO feed and antibiotic and hormone free! And, farm fresh free range eggs too!


McMaine's Riverhaven Farm will have lettuce blends, arugula and Asian greens including Mizuna, Komatsuma and Shungi Ku. Look for wonderful home baked goods, Concord and Niagara Grape jams, pepper jams and even some dried bean soup mix! A limited supply of Sugar Ann peas and asparagus will also be available!
