Saturday at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market!

 

It's another red, white and blue weekend! Memorial Day weekend is a time to remember those men and women who have lost their lives while serving our country. We salute them with pride!


Memorial Day is also the unofficial beginning of summer and that means bbq's and picnics! I have to admit that a good old fashioned hot dog or hamburger on the grill is great but I have to tell you that grilled fruits and veggies have become my favorite. Especially since I know that I can purchase homegrown from local farmers without having to think about how long they traveled to get to my grill...I know they are fresh! :)


So what veggies will be available for grilling this Saturday? Here's a partial list...

TOMATOES

Saturday at the BGFM!

Looks like Mother Nature might be sending us some rain tomorrow. But, we'll still be there with fresh spring goodies like asparagus, lettuce, greens, onions and radishes. Of course, you'll also be able to find some wonderful jams, whipped honey, baked goods and herb seasoning.  And, Roger, the tomato guy will be there taking orders for his wonderful heirloom maters!


As I was typing up the list of available items I started to think that it sure doesn't look like much will be available...what, no corn or tomatoes? Then I remembered that the Bluegrass Farmers' Market is just that, a real farmers market with 100% homegrown or produced items. Unfortunately that does mean that you won't find corn or tomatoes tomorrow because they are not in season in Kentucky! Instead, you'll be guaranteed that you are supporting honest to gosh real farmers who grow instead of buying to resell. We think it's worth the lack of a few items...especially on this Earth Day!


~*~ MARKET HOURS ~*~



Saturday 9 until 2 or until sold out

Tuesday market will open soon!
