Farmer;s Market May 11, 2019
A new season is upon us and a new opportunity to support local, organic food is yours to seize.
The St. Matthew's Famers Market will begin tomorrow, Saturday, May 11 from 8:00 - noon at Beargrass Christian Church on the corner of Shelbyville Rd and Browns Lane.
The primary crop we will be offering tomorrow is local, certified organic asparagus. If your only experience with asparagus is the stuff in the grocery store, you are in for a BIG surprise. A very pleasant BIG surprise!
Compared to last year, this spring has been very satisfying. We are still getting a lot of rain but we have had some nice dry spells that have allowed us to get some stuff in the ground. And it's looking good.
If you would like to explore your own green thumb, pick up some fresh organic herb plants we will have ready tomorrow for sale.
And, of course, you will want to check out the new folk craftsmanship from the hands of Beth's eighty seven year old father, Bill Newman, as he repurposes wood from the farm into incredible wooden creations. Just make a trip to Berea sometime and compare the price and craftsmanship of the offerings there with what you can get in your own back yard here in Louisville. Don't miss out on these. Seize this opportunity while you can.
Looks like it will be a nice day. Beth and I will be ready for you at 8:00.
Come see us. It's been along time and we have missed you.
