When I heard the Lexington Farmer’s Market was coming to the Summit (a new shopping development VERY close to home) I was beyond excited! Every Wednesday it will be set up in the Summit at Fritz Farm on the corner of Nicholasville and Man O War. Yesterday was the kickoff event with live music, giveaways, and lots of different vendors selling everything from flowers to wine to tomatoes. I took Savannah and we really enjoyed our time there, despite the 90 degree heat! The market is held in the Whole Foods parking lot, so we went in to get AC several times! Savannah’s highlights of the market were eating the fresh blueberries, seeing all the doggies, and eating a cereal bar from the free kids section at Whole Foods. Hmm seeing a pattern there?? She must get it from her mama! And what a great way to share a weekly tradition with your kids teaching them about the importance of eating local, eating healthy, and growing your own veggies!Here are the goodies we bought! Can’t go wrong with this local baked bread from Quarles Farm.
Look at this cute free tote that was one of the giveaways to the first 100 customers! It was designed by a local artist.
As soon as I saw these green tomatoes, I immediately wanted to make fried green tomatoes. Living in the south would not be complete without them! They turned out so good. Here is the recipe!
Apparently, Lexington Pasta provides for the Lexington Pasta Garage, another local spot we need to check out sometime!Savannah really loved the local blueberries!And that cereal bar, well you can clearly see she enjoyed that as well!
And meeting up with friends and their cute babes was one of my favorite parts!
We will be heading back out next Wednesday! Who wants to join us??
Thanks for reading!
Hi Kim, thanks for trying my Fried Green Tomato recipe! The farmer’s market sounds great, I hardly ever get a chance to go to our local one, but I’m going to try to next month.
WOW! FANTASTIC FARMER’S MARKET. LOVE THE POST AND THE PICS. PAPA
