The kids are back in school, the weather folks keep telling us that the meteorological fall season has started, the pools have closed, windows are being opened and the AC is being turned off. What does that mean for the folks at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market?
It means we are busier than ever!!!
There's still plenty of the warm weather crops to tend to and some of the fall crops have been planted but there's still more to go in the ground. The only time a farmer gets to stop is when we have snow covered grounds and even then they are ordering seeds for the following year. Thank heavens the snow is a long way off and we still get to do what we love...get our hands dirty!
This week you'll be able to find tomatoes of all types including heirlooms, sweet and hot peppers, a huge variety of potatoes, kale, squash, cucumbers, carrots, onions, okra, green beans, fresh cut herbs, rhubarb, raspberries, watermelons and maybe even some corn!
If that's not enough to tempt you to visit us, how about wonderful jams and jellies, home baked goods, award winning honey, herb seasoning, Amish cheese, ASH Free beef and farm fresh eggs! And, if you missed out on a sample of the wonderful beer cheese...it's back this week! Don't forget the smell good things like fresh cut flowers and wonderful homemade soaps! Some of them are even made with local bee pollen!
As you can see we are still very busy doing what we love...growing and producing for you!
