Derby Day at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market!

 

It was so nice to see the sun shine last Saturday! Hopefully Mother Nature will be almost as nice this week. Somehow the Kentucky Derby is so much more fun to watch when the sun is shining. And, Mother's Day is not quite as happy when it is raining...mom deserves a bright and sunny day. :)


Let's start with Derby Day and the wonderful goodies available to make your party a true Kentucky experience. You can't have a derby meal without asparagus and we'll have plenty available! Derby Day means spring time and what's better than a fresh lettuce, green onion and radish salad! But, the one item that truly means Kentucky Derby is mint!!! Every proper mint julep deserves Kentucky Colonel Mint and you'll be able to find that this Saturday too! So, start your Derby Day out early by joining us at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market.


Next comes Mother's Day on Sunday! How about a beautiful plant or day lily for the special mom in your life. Maybe something sweet just like she is...jam cake or honey! Or, you could prepare a special meal for her using hand blended herb seasoning on those wonderful fresh veggies! Wishing all those special gals a Happy Mother's Day!


Even with all of the rainy weather lately, the BGFM is growing as the season progresses! Remember, we are a 100% homegrown/produced market...that means no corn or tomatoes yet! But, we do have mater plants!!! Here's a bit of what you'll find on Saturday...

Another Super Saturday at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market!

Fall has sure come to the Bluegrass Farmers' Market! Our farmers are bringing loads of fall/winter squash, pumpkins, sweet potatoes, lettuce, apples, pears, mums, corn shocks, decorative corn, gourds and plenty of fresh greens!


The great part is, we still have plenty of the things that we think of as summer produce left too! Tomatoes, green peppers, banana peppers, hot& spicy peppers, eggplant, okra, zucchini, yellow squash, green beans, basil and raspberries are plentiful!


If that hasn't tempted you enough, how about the wonderful jams and jellies! Fantastic home baked goods like breads, cookies and cakes! Herb seasoning that is sure to make even the most novice cook a hero with friends and family!


And, they all come with friendly, smiling faces that belong to our growers and producers! The Bluegrass Farmers' Market is very particular about who sells at our market. Each member must be certified Kentucky Proud! Every member must attend a GAP (Good Agricultural Practices) training session in order to make sure that we can provide only the very best and safest to our customers! Every farm is inspected to make sure that our customers are buying items that our farmer members either grew, raised, baked or made themselves! We guarantee 100% locally grown or produced and nothing is ever purchased for resale! That means when you shop at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market, you are truly supporting a local farm family...it just doesn't get any better than that!


Add FREE and convenient parking, stroller and wheelchair friendly shopping, pets are always welcome to the homegrown goodness and you have the #1 farmers market n Kentucky! Thats right, our customers voted us #1 in the entire state...no matter how big the market was. Guess that means bigger is not always better!
