Herb’n Renewal is going Cajun tomorrow!

 

Well, as Cajun as a hot “dawg” can get! Lol

Drew will be sampling his Cajun BBQ Sauce’n Dawgs at the Bluegrass Farmers’ Market tomorrow! It’s made with our Cajun Wing’n Season and it is a bit on the spicy side but not killer hot. Heck, by the time you add the “Holy Trinity” and cheese topping…it’s just a good old Dawg!!! Stop by and have a sample or take one home with ya!

The Bluegrass Farmers’ Market is loaded with summer goodness…corn, tomatoes, peppers, squash, zucchini, onions, potatoes, cucumbers, eggplant, okra and of course herb seasoning to make them all taste even better!

You won’t need any seasoning for the melons and berries available but I highly recommend them! The cantaloupe I purchased last week was wonderful! The blackberries, raspberries and blueberries are to die for! I couldn’t believe how big the blackberries were…YIKES!

Hey, next Saturday the market is going to be celebrating National Farmers Market Week with a freebie! I’m talking a big farmers market tote bag to haul your bounty home in! Of course the fact that it is “wildcat blue” and white makes it all the more special. 🙂

See ya at the Bluegrass Farmers’ Market tomorrow, Saturday from 9 until 2. We’re located at 3450 Richmond Rd. next to the Glenn Auto Mall.

Herb’n Renewal cook’n at the Bluegrass Farmers’ Market

 

Tomorrow is going to be a great day at the Bluegrass Farmers’ Market! First off, it’s Customer Appreciation Day! Our farmers will be giving away all sorts of goodies! You can sign up to win “Market Bucks!” And, the kids get to create their very own market veggie visor. Have to admit that I made one for myself just to see how it would look. I’m not a big fan of eggplant but I just couldn’t resist putting one big purple one in the middle! Lol Stop by and see my creation..I’ll be wearing mine tomorrow! 🙂

Drew started the day out early by grilling chicken so that he can let it cool in order to prepare his wonderful Great’n Grilled Chicken Salad for sampling tomorrow. It’s one of my favorites and I can’t wait to sneak a sample for myself. The Rub’n Season for Poultry is a great herb blend and it really makes this a great chicken salad recipe…stop by and have a sample! You can even take a sandwich home with you!

Karin has been busy in the soap shop and those crazy little “Fish’n A Bag” soaps are back! So are the crowd favorites…Shea, Goat’n Honey soaps!

So, take some time to come and visit us at Lexington’s only 100% homegrown/produced farmers market tomorrow. We’ll be there from 9 until 2. It’s just a hop skip and a jump from Man O’War, right next to the Glenn Auto Mall…ya can’t miss us! July 10th would be a great time to make your first trip to the Bluegrass Farmers’ Market. Heck, you could leave with some free fruits, veggies, soaps, jams, plants, flowers or even some market $$$ to spend shopping! We love our customers and we are gonna show you just how much tomorrow at our Customer Appreciation Day celebration! Here’s a link to the blog letting you know all about us an what’s gonna be available. http://www.localharvest.org/blog/29529/

The herb folks at Herb’n Renewal, Karin and Drew, would love see ya! 🙂

Herb’n Renewal will be grilling zucchini!

Well, zucchini and different varieties of squash…even one called “cousa” this Saturday at the Bluegrass Farmers’ Market. 

Drew is setting up the grill and we’ll be offering samples of various herb blends on farm fresh market squash and zucchini!  So, if you have wanted to try Herb’n Cowboy, Herb’n All, Smoke’n Season, Good’n Garlicky or even a sprinkle of some “hot” stuff, stop by and have a taste!

The Bluegrass Farmers’ Market is Lexington’s only 100% homegrown/produced market and we are very proud to be members.  It’s just really nice to belong to a group that has rules and regulations that apply to everyone and, by George, you better stick to them!  HaHa!  It’s also a pleasure to be amongst real farmers again and most importantly, to have customers who really appreciate the fact that we all grow, raise, bake or make what we sell.

We’d love to see you on Saturday.  We’ll be at the market from 9 until 2.  The Bluegrass Farmers’ Market is located at 3450 Richmond Rd. in the parking lot of Pedal the Plant and Fast Signs…right next to the Glenn Auto Mall.  Now, before you say to yourself…heck, that’s far away…we’re only a hop, skip and a jump from Man O’War and the great part is…free and plentiful parking!

Check out the market blog to see what’s available this week.   http://www.localharvest.org/blog/29529/
