Bluegrass Farmers' Market Happenings!

September is one of my favorite months of the year. Most of the warm summer crops are still available at the farmers market and some of the cooler fall crops are starting to make an appearance. It just doesn't get any better than that!


We can all still enjoy ripe tomatoes, freshly picked corn, wonderful green beans, tantalizing hot and sweet peppers, newly harvested potatoes, fresh cut rhubarb and sweet treats like watermelons, cantaloupes and raspberries!


And, we're just starting to see some of the cooler weather crops like kale, onions, garlic and shallots!


~*~ All 100% homegrown on our farms! ~*~


Don't forget about the beautiful and colorful flowers that will bring a smile to anyones face! Or, the herb seasoning that can make a chef out of anyone! How about some of those wonderful jams and jellies! And, the great beer cheese! Tender and flavorful ASH Free beef! Farm fresh eggs and Amish cheese that can't be beat! Home baked goods that will make you drool! Handmade soaps are a luxury only they are not luxury priced!


~*~ All 100% raised, grown or produced by our farmers! ~*~


September also has a day that we, as Americans, need to remember. September 11th! Please take a moment out of your busy schedule to remember those that lost their lives on 9/11 and to thank our service men and women for continuing to keep us safe.


~*~ MARKET HOURS ~*~


Tuesday 3 until 6:30

Saturday 9 until 2


We'll be set up in the beautiful tree lined parking lot of Pedal the Planet and Fast Signs, right next door to the Glenn Auto Mall on Richmond Rd. It's just a hop, skip and a jump outside of Man 'O War Blvd. Parking is right there so you don't have to drive around hunting for a spot to park. The parking lot is also paved and that makes it very stroller and wheelchair friendly!

Look for our new and bigger signs!

This week at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market!

 

It's National Farmers Market Week and it's wonderful that our government recognizes the important role that farmers play in our daily living. But, we celebrate our farmers market every time we pull our trucks into place, set up our tents and unload the bounty from our farms! It's what we do and it's what we love doing because we know that our customers deserve and love the freshest available! So, we thank you for making National Farmers Market Week a daily event for us.


Doing what we love sometimes has its disadvantages, like at the Tuesday market this week. Our farmers got caught in the torrential downpour that hit Lexington! Lucky for them that we set up in a parking lot that has businesses and a church that saw their dilemma and invited them in until the rain stopped. We thank them for thinking of us all of the time but especially on Tuesday!


Now that they have dried out and returned to the fields to harvest, here's a bit of what you will find at the market this week...
